Arlington Public Schools students will not have access to free, in-school flu vaccinations this fall, county school officials said.

Last school year, the school system partnered with Healthy Schools (CareDox) to offer the in-school service.

“We had plans to continue this offering for students this year; however, the provider notified us they are no longer able to provide this service in our area due to a restructuring of the company,” school officials said in a letter to parents.

“We regret that we are not able to provide this service this year, and we are currently exploring new partners to work with us in the future,” officials said.

[angry]How about some philanthropy, for a change, from Arlington's major health care providers? Then there's the Arlington Board of Supervisors which thinks nothing about placing Taj Mahal sports and recreation infrastructure funding on its consent, agenda, to the tune of tens of millions every year.
