U-46 Elementary COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics 

November 19 and 23 during the school day   

With federal health officials now recommending that children ages 5 to 11 be vaccinated against COVID-19, School District U-46 is hosting optional vaccine clinics at all 40 of its elementary schools before the Thanksgiving holiday.

The clinics will allow students ages 5 to 11 to be vaccinated with the pediatric dose of the Pfizer vaccine during the school day. For a student to participate, their parent or guardian must register them for the first and second dose of the vaccine, and submit a consent form to their school nurse at least 24 hours before their appointment. 

More information about our elementary COVID-19 vaccine clinics including schedule and registration links can be found at u-46.org/covidclinics

Visit the U-46 Health Services page for more options.
