Alachua County Public Schools will host the annual Control Flu Celebration on April 23, 2014, to release results of the 2013 Control Flu program, which provides free FluMist immunizations to students in all local schools.

Florida Department of Health Deputy Secretary C. Meade Grigg will be on hand for the release of the 2013 results, which will be presented by UF CTSI TL1 Scholar Cuc Tran. Local schools and school nurses also will be recognized for their roles in the program.

The Control Flu program was nationally recognized in 2011 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Medical Association. It was highlighted in a 2012 report by the Institute of Medicine Committee on Integrating Primary Care and Public Health.

Now in its fifth year, the program is supported by 28 coalition partners, including the UF CTSI, Alachua County School Board, Alachua County Health Department, AvMed Healthcare, United Way and others. Faculty and students from multiple institutes and colleges at UF participate in the program, including the Emerging Pathogens Institute and the UF colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Public Health and Health Professions.
