School-Based Immunizations

Beginning next week, COVID-19 immunizations will be available to young people at school-based clinics. These clinics will be offered during school hours and in some cases, clinics will continue to operate outside school hours as a pop-up clinic for all members of the community. Parents and guardians who wish to be immunized with their children or attend their child’s immunization can do during the pop-up clinic outside of school hours. School clinics are expected to run for four to six weeks.
