Say "Boo!" to the Flu is an annual national education campaign to increase awareness of the importance of flu prevention for children. Every October, through a partnership with The Clorox Company, VNAA works with its members to host local "Boo!" clinics in their communities. VNAA provides participating agencies with step-by-step instructions on how to host a "Boo!" clinic and receive national attention for their agency. VNAA member agencies may also apply for a mini-grant to help offset a portion of the marketing, promotional and media costs associated with "Boo!" events.


2013 Say “Boo” to the Flu” program details

VNAA will provide turnkey kits and accept mini-grant applications to all participating agencies. VNAA members have the option to apply for a turnkey kit and/or a mini-grant which includes the turnkey kit. The turnkey kit includes Halloween-themed Say “Boo!” to the Flu tote bags and stickers. While not required, VNAA encourages member agencies to focus their “Boo!” clinic outreach efforts on school-aged children. Visit the Say “Boo!” to the Flu website to learn more and complete the participation questionnaire.


National flu clinic listing opportunities

VNAA has two free opportunities for flu clinics to be listed in a national searchable database.

  1. VNAA Find a Flu Clinic Map. As in previous years, VNAA will host an interactive national flu clinic locator just for VNAA members. To get your agency’s clinics listed, please fill out this survey.
  2. HealthMap Vaccine Finder.  HealthMap Vaccine Finder is a free, online service where users can search for locations offering a number of different vaccines. Providers who participated last year can log in to their account at vaccine.healthmap.org/admin and update their information by following the directions on the Help tab. New providers must first register for an account at vaccine.healthmap.org/admin/signup. Once you receive your password and login, you may then upload the required information to your account. Please direct any questions to vaccine@healthmap.org
