WETHERSFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

An elementary school in Wethersfield teamed up with Connecticut Children's Medical Center to fight the flu.

A special flu shot clinic was held at Wright Elementary School on Tuesday.   

Nurses from Connecticut Children’s Medical Center were on hand to vaccinate and educate students on staying healthy.

"I think it is very, very beneficial,” parent Elizabeth Montes said.

School officials say it's all part of a larger effort to fight absenteeism during the winter months.
