COVID Vaccine Clinics:

Our schools are once again offering COVID vaccine clinics! The clinics will provide Pfizer vaccines for those participants 12 and older and J&J vaccine for those over 18. Registration using the links below is recommended so staff can have an idea of how many participants there will be; however, walk-ins will be accepted. If students are under 18, they will need to have had a parent/guardian pre-register them, unless the parent/guardian is present. These clinics are open to all staff, students and the community.

Please choose the link specific for your location:
