Warren City Schools, in partnership with Akron Children’s Hospital, will facilitate Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics for individuals ages 12 and older on Thursday, May 20.
The clinics are being tentatively planned for all four of the district’s PK-8 schools. However, sites may be consolidated as needed based upon registration numbers. Should sites by consolidated, the district will bus students from their home school buildings to one of the district’s other schools where vaccinations will be taking place.
Pre-registration is required through participation surveys sent Thursday, May 13, to all families in the Warren City School District. Surveys/pre-registrations must be completed by noon on Monday, May 17.
Families will be notified via email/FinalForms of their appointment times by a school nurse or representative.
This vaccination is a two-step process during which participants will be administered the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine in two doses.
The second dosage will be administered during similar clinics on Thursday, June 10.
Both clinic dates were selected because they fall within time frames when school will be in session – either as part of the regular school year or during the district’s summer learning program, explained Superintendent Steve Chiaro.
