âWe are working hard with our schools and other community groups to remove any potential barriers that could prevent someone from getting the vaccine,â said Amy Westbrook, director of the Public Health Division.
âThat’s why we offer this clinic after school and at night, and that’s why we allow walk-in appointments. Many of the student athletes we hope to reach have games or practices that day, which can be difficult to plan. in the surrounding area, we therefore also allow walk-in appointments to try to accommodate everyone better. “
The Pfizer vaccine involves two doses given three weeks apart, so a person vaccinated on Thursday should receive their second dose around May 13 and would be considered fully vaccinated on May 27.
Anyone between the ages of 16 and 17 getting vaccinated must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign a consent form.
