TotalWellness is proud to be a small part of the Shoo the Flu program in Oakland. Shoo the Flu is a partnership of the Alameda County Public Health Department, California Department of Public Health and the Oakland Unified School District, funded by the Page Family Foundation.
Shoo the Flu aims to reduce the flu in Oakland by offering pre-K to 5th grade students a vaccine at school for no cost. Besides protecting students and reducing flu in the community, school-based flu vaccine programs reduce absenteeism in students and teachers. TotalWellness provides nurses to administer the vaccine in schools and NBC Bay Area showed some of our contractors in action including Dina Marvulli, Ann Iurato, Janet Merrill, and Pek Leong.
