COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at Hadley September 1st and 22nd
District 41 is partnering with AMITA Health to host a vaccine clinic for students ages 12 and up, family members and staff. The clinic will take place on September 1 and September 22 for doses one and two, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Hadley Junior High, 240 Hawthorne Blvd, Glen Ellyn. Participants will enter Hadley using Door 9.
AMITA will be offering the Pfizer vaccine.
The event is free of charge.
Anyone under 18 will need a parent/guardian present.
Please CLICK HERE to fill out the form by August 29th. AMITA will follow up to schedule your appointments. Please do not schedule yourself/your child if you will not be available to attend both the 9/1 and 9/22 clinic dates. All interested participants should have a conversation and get their questions answered regarding the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine with their own and their child's primary healthcare provider. This event is being offered as a courtesy to our families as the vaccine is not mandated. In order to host this event, we need to have a minimum of 50 participants.
