COVID vaccine clinics begin at FWCS Tuesday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) -- Tuesday, 700 Fort Wayne Community Schools staff and 700 students will get their first Pfizer vaccine shot, which is about 15% of the district's eligible high schoolers.

The clinics will be held at all five high schools, as well as at the Family and Community Engagement Center.

The adults have appointments reserved, and school nurses will use the students' class schedules to ensure there's not a log jam of people waiting to be innoculated.

Leaders at FWCS were in the middle of scheduling COVID vaccination clinics for the district's teachers when the state opened the eligibility to Hoosiers 16 and older.

High schoolers will need to bring their signed consent form to their appointment.

If your 16 years or older FWCS high schooler didn't get signed up in time, you can sign the consent form and call the school nurse to see if any doses might be left over because others were absent.

The second doses of the Pfizer vaccine will be administered at the schools in three weeks.
