Friends Select to Host Vaccine Clinic

Friends Select will host a vaccination clinic exclusively for students ages 5 to 11 on November 22nd. CVS Pharmacy staff will be on campus administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which was recently approved by the FDA for children ages 5 to 11. According to Nurse Kelly, CVS plans to only administer the vaccine to 5 to 11-year-olds to decrease the risk of mixing up doses.

The clinic will be held in the dining hall from 1-7 p.m. There will also be a specific time for teachers to receive their booster shots from 1-2 p.m. The school highly encourages all students to get vaccinated to keep themselves and their classmates safe. A similar clinic will be held on December 13th for students to receive their second doses.

As a result of the clinic, there will be limited use of the dining hall on Monday, November 22nd, and Monday, December 13th. It will be open for break but closed during the Upper School lunch period at 1 pm.
