School-Based COVID Vaccination Clinic Information for Families

This information only pertains to parents who want their children, ages 12-19 years old to be vaccinated at school with the Pfizer COVID vaccine.

 

  • The OESU school-based clinics are voluntary and consent from a parent/guardian is required for any student under the age of 18 to receive the vaccine. 

  • The Pfizer 2 dose vaccine has been approved for emergency use in this age group and will be administered by Little Rivers Health Care staff.  

  • Parents are encouraged to attend to be with their child but it is not mandatory. 

  • Students who are learning remotely or who are homeschooled are welcome to participate.

  • Second dose clinics scheduled after the appropriate interval.

  • Please refer to the school that your child attends for dates, times and details of their individual vaccination clinics. Thank you.

       LRHC has divided OESU schools into 2 groups with slightly different configurations.  

 

The first group is NES, TES, BES and WRVS.

-  Please notify your school nurse that your child will be attending the school clinic using one of these methods depending on your situation:

         If you will not be with your child you must return a signed a permission slip to the school.  (Attached below)

         If you will be with your child please email or call your school nurse to let them know that you are coming and if you want to receive a v               vaccination. 

      

-  Students will definitely be vaccinated and parents only if LRHC has enough doses.  No public vaccinations will be given at these schools.

 

-  Students from this group should NOT register for the vaccine online or use the call center. 

    Parental Consent

    Consent from a parent/guardian is required for students under the age of 18 to receive the vaccine. In an effort to make receiving a vaccine      as easy as possible, there are multiple

    ways that parents can provide consent.

  • By signing a permission slip - Schools will send home a hard copy of the  Permission Slip that parents/guardians can use to give consent.  (See attached.)

  • By attending the clinic with their child - Clinics will provide limited 'walk-in' vaccine doses. If students have their parent/guardian with them, they will be able to provide consent at that time.   

 

The second group is OHS (including RBCTC) and BMU.

    Link to State Online Registration and Answers to Questions


    Registering in advance for these clinics is the best way to secure a dose, and will simplify the process of providing                      parent/guardian consent.

 

  • By registering for the vaccine online - Parents/guardians can add their children as dependents in the State's vaccine registration system, and then schedule an appointment for them at their school clinic or another convenient community clinic. As part of that registration process, you will be asked to provide consent for your child to be vaccinated. Please note that you may not be able to schedule an appointment until the end of the week.

  • By registering for the vaccine using the call center - 855-722-7878 Monday - Friday, 8:15 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.  To make a vaccine appointment for your child. Press "1" to use a language other than English. As part of that registration process, you will be asked to provide consent over the phone.

  • By signing a permission slip - You can request a hard copy Permission Slip from your school nurse to give consent. 

  • By attending the clinic with your child - Clinics will provide limited 'walk-in' vaccine doses. If students have their parent/guardian with them, they be able to provide consent at that time. As a reminder, the best way for students to guarantee their dose is to register in advance.

  • Over the phone during the clinic - If the student attends a clinic as a walk-in without their parent/guardian present, the clinic registration staff will be able to accept and document parental consent over the phone, similar to the call center process. As a reminder, the best way for students to guarantee their dose is to register in advance.

Thank you for your willingness to step forward to support the statewide vaccination effort.   If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call Suzannah Tann, District COVID coordinator,  at 802-392-4025.
