Child Care Toolkit

Keeping your staff healthy is the best way to keep your children — and their parents — happy and healthy as well. By encouraging your staff members to get a flu vaccine, you’re ensuring that they’re able to work and provide for their families, while also protecting those in your care from potentially getting the flu.


Plan, prepare, and respond

No matter the level of transmission in a community, every child care program should have a plan in place to protect staff, children, and their families from the spread of COVID-19.


You can support influenza vaccination

  • Checking influenza vaccination records regularly to ensure each child is up to date.
  • Educating staff and ensuring they receive their flu vaccine each season.
  • Educating parents in their program and helping connect them to credible resources.
