College Place Public Schools Will Vaccinate Students Next Week
If you have a student in the College Place School Districts, there is going to be a clinic for students to get vaccinated next week for ages 12-15.
According to a press release from the College Place School District, a clinic will be held on Wednesday, May 19th, 2021 for students aged 12-15.
The district had already held a clinic for students aged 16-18.
Here are the details from the press release:
College Place Public Schools has teamed up with Walla Walla County Department of Community Health to vaccinate over fifty students, staff, and community members Tuesday during a vaccination clinic held at College Place High School.
The goal of the clinic was to target students in the age bracket of 16-18 while supporting others in the community who would benefit from the convenient location.
College Place Public Schools are now setting their sights on vaccinating students ages 12-15 on May 19, 2021.
Again, in partnership with Community Health, the district will work to vaccinate students in grades 6-10 whose parents give permission for vaccinations.
Superintendent Jim Fry stated, “It is 100% the choice of parents and guardians as to whether their child gets the vaccine. We are here to support our students’ access to the vaccination.
Our partnership with Walla Walla Community Health has been outstanding since the beginning of the pandemic and this just another example.”
Any student in College Place School District ages 12-18 can get the vaccine on May 19, 2021, by following this link here.
