LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - Laredo Independent School District is continuing its efforts to make sure students are protected during the flu season.
On Thursday morning, over 170 students received their flu shot at Garcia Early College High School.
A team of registered nurses have been visiting different campuses across the district to offer the vaccine to students.
Margarita Taboada, the principal at Garcia Early College High School says the campus continues to do its best to prevent the spread of the flu as well as covid.
“We continue with procedures to try and prevent the spread of Covid and flu and of course the other illnesses that might be out there,” said Taboada. “Some of the things that we have, our custodial staff continues to mist the classrooms after school, we also have air purifiers in the classrooms and in the cafeteria where students congregate.”
