Vaccines for Students Ages 5 and Up!
Because many sites will not be able to begin vaccinating children until later this week, families are encouraged to check providers’ websites and coronavirus.dc.gov for more information about which sites have received their doses and started vaccinating children.
Parents who are unable to bring their child will have the option to print and sign a form allowing a trusted family member to accompany their child to the pop-up vaccine clinics. The trusted family member should bring the printed forms along with a photo ID.
On Friday, November 5, DC Health will host pop-up vaccine clinics for children ages 5-11 at two community centers: Takoma Community Center in Ward 4 (300 Van Buren Street NW) and Ft. Stanton Recreation Center in Ward 8 (1812 Erie Street SE). Parents or guardians can bring their children between the hours of 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to receive their first dose of the pediatric Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
Getting your child vaccinated will help keep your student safe and, in the classroom, where we know students learn best. Students who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine if they come in close contact with someone in or outside of the school who tests positive for COVID-19. Learn more about our health and safety measures when there is a COVID-19 case at school at dcpsreopenstrong.com/health/response.
