AISD vaccine clinics welcome middle-schoolers

Monday, May 17, 2021 by Tai Moses

Now that the FDA has authorized the Pfizer Covid vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds, Austin ISD is encouraging families of sixth- through ninth-graders to get their students vaccinated. The school district is asking families to get the vaccine through their family physician or pharmacy, and if those are not available, at an AISD pop-up clinic. Alexandra Copeland, director of AISD health services, said, “With this authorization, our middle and high school students will be able to walk into their classrooms next year knowing they have the best protection from Covid-19 possible. Vaccines have been the game-changer in our fight against Covid-19, and now more students will have access to this life-saving shot.”
