Kingsway partners with Walgreens to host COVID-19 Vaccination Site for students 16 years and older

See Press Release for additional information

 

UPDATE: 

 

With the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s announcement authorizing Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccines for adolescents 12 through 15, Walgreens has received the go-ahead to extend Kingsway's Vaccination Site to students 12 years or older.

 

Kingsway will host the COVID-19 vaccination site at Kingsway Regional Middle School for students who are 12 years or older on Saturday, May 15 and Saturday, June 5.

 

This is an exciting development and a convenient opportunity for all students, 12 years or older to be vaccinated and a big step toward preparing our schools for a regular opening in September. Parents/guardians who accompany their child will be required to provide consent and may obtain the vaccine themselves when they arrive for scheduled appointments.

 

Walgreen Pharmacists and nurses will be on site to administer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. This is a two-dose vaccine, which is a messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine that has both synthetic, or chemically produced, components and enzymatically produced components from naturally occurring substances such as proteins. The vaccine does not contain any live virus. To learn more about the Pfizer vaccine, click HERE.

 

Students will be required to preregister by clicking the Walgreens Immunization Clinic link.
