Dear Shaler Area High School families,
The Shaler Area School District, in partnership with Giant Eagle Pharmacy, will be hosting a COVID-19 vaccination clinic for students age 16 and older who are attending Shaler Area High School. There is no fee or copay required to receive the vaccination.
The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine will be offered on Thursday, May 6, 2021 during the school day. Cohort C students are invited to participate from 2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. This is a 2-dose series and the second dose is given 21-42 days after the first dose. The second dose will be offered at school on June 3, 2021 during the school day. Cohort C students are invited to participate from 2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Parents/guardians of current Shaler Area High School students who wish to have their child vaccinated, must:
On the day of the Vaccine Clinic, students are to bring with them:
1. Completed immunization administration record form (Students younger than 18 must have a parent/guardian complete and sign the form)
2. Student’s insurance card (if a student does not have health insurance, they will still receive the vaccination at no cost)
3. Photo ID (driver’s license or school issued ID)
