Akron Children’s Hospital is offering free flu shots to students in the greater Akron area this week.

The hospital is teaming up with Health Heroes to make the shots available to students who get their parents’ permission.

“Akron Children’s is again partnering with Health Heroes to make this happen,” said Michele Wilmoth, director of School Health Services for Akron Children’s. “Last year was our first year doing this and it proved to be a very convenient way to get children vaccinated.”

Participating schools and school districts include:

  • Akron Public Schools
  • Akros Middle School
  • Coventry Local Schools
  • Edge Academy
  • Medina City Schools
  • North Canton City Schools
