District 214 to host vaccination clinics for students
Northwest Suburban High School District 214 students age 16 and older will be able to receive COVID-19 vaccinations at schools in May and June, district officials announced.
Through a partnership with Passport Health, the two-dose Pfizer vaccine will be dispensed at three of the district's six high schools. Exact locations will be determined following a parent-student interest survey that was due Friday.
"While this clearly is an individual choice for students and their families, we have heard from numerous families who view vaccination as a key step in returning to normal activities and a much greater sense of normalcy overall," Superintendent David Schuler said.
Officials anticipate hosting clinics on the following dates: May 18 (dose 1)/June 15 (dose 2), May 19 (dose 1)/June 16 (dose 2) and May 20 (dose 1)/June 17 (dose 2).
