The School District of Broward County is now offering COVID-19 vaccinations for students who are 16-year-old and younger.

The Pfizer vaccine doses will be administered at high schools from May 4th – May 15th from 1 to 6 p.m.

Students under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and will be required to complete the COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent form to receive the vaccine.  School staff members and parents will also be eligible to receive the vaccine.

“I think the health department is looking for unique ways to get the whole community vaccinated, so this is just another way that they can ensure that everyone has access to it,” Broward Schools Chief Portfolio Services Officer John Sullivan said. “So we’re very happy to partner with them to make it available to our school community.”

Once the first shots are given, the health department will return to the schools in three weeks to administer the second shots.

The schedule is as follows:
