School District 189 Partners with East Side Health District for a Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccination Event
Dear School District 189 Families,
In partnership with the East Side Health District, we are holding a pediatric COVID vaccination clinic on Saturday, December 4, 2021, from 10:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m. This clinic will serve children ages 5 to 11 ONLY as they receive the initial dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 pediatric vaccine at East St. Louis Senior High School (4901 State Street)
Please note: a parent or guardian MUST be present at the clinic as parental consent is required to administer a vaccination to children under 18 years old.
The pediatric vaccination event will be held at East St. Louis Senior High School's small gym on Saturday, December 4, 2021, from 10:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m. Age-eligible (5-11 years old) students, children of staff, and community members within the footprint of School District 189 are welcome.
Please note the following details:
Children ages 5-11 must have a parent present to give consent.
The parent must bring their own photo ID to verify custody. Guardians must bring appropriate evidence of custody for the child to receive the vaccine.
COVID-19 cases in children can result in hospitalizations, deaths, MIS-C (inflammatory syndromes), and long-term complications, such as "long COVID," where symptoms linger for months. Do your part to protect your child from COVID-19 by getting them the pediatric vaccine.
