    • Due to the impact of the pandemic, the Knox County Health Department (KCHD) will not be able to conduct individual flu vaccination clinics at each of our Knox County public pre-schools, elementary and middle schools this year. Instead, KCHD will hold public flu vaccination clinics at several locations in Knox County. These clinics are geared towards making the flu vaccine available to anyone in the community, with a special emphasis on school-aged children and their families.  Attached is a document that provides more information and locations.
