Mid-May Vaccine Clinics for 12 - 15-year-olds at Middle Schools

 

Dear Middle School Families:
 
As you may know, this week the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) is expected to allow the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine to be administered to children 12-15 years of age. In anticipation of that authorization, Norwich Public Schools is pleased to partner with UCFS Healthcare to offer middle school students COVID-19 vaccination clinics. 
 
Kelly STEAM Magnet Middle School:
The first Pfizer dose will be administered Monday, May 17, starting at 8:30 am and the second dose will be administered Monday, June 7, also starting at 8:30 am.
 
Teachers Memorial Global Studies Magnet Middle School:
The first Pfizer dose will be administered Tuesday, May 18, starting at 8:30 am and the second dose will be administered Tuesday, June 8, also starting at 8:30 am.
 
Those eligible to participate in this clinic include:
Any NPS student age 12-15 with signed parent consent
 
If you are interested in having your child participating in this free clinic, please fill out this form and return it to your school nurse by 2 pm on Friday, May 14, 2021. This is an absolute deadline. Any students who do not have a consent form on file in the Nurse’s Office by this deadline will not be vaccinated. 
 
Kelly parents can return the consent form to the school or email it to Nurse Jajai Quinn at jquinn@norwichpublicschools.org.

Global parents can return the consent form to the school or email it to Nurse Margaret Shieber at mshieber@norwichpublicschools.org.
 
Appointments will be scheduled once the consent form is received. Walk-ins (students coming in on the date of the clinic with a signed consent form) will not be permitted (because UCFS will not have brought a vaccine). There is no make-up day so if your child is absent they will not participate in this clinic.
 
The vaccination clinic is open to in-person and remote learners.
 
If you have any questions please call the school principal.
 
Sincerely,
 
Kristen E. Stringfellow, Ed.D., Superintendent
Norwich Public Schools
