Upcoming COVID-19 vaccine clinics open to Sonoma County students, their families
Two upcoming clinics are providing COVID-19 vaccines to Sonoma County students age 12 and older and their families, according to a news release from the Sonoma County Office of Education.
The clinics will be held at Elsie Allen High School, 599 Bellevue Ave. in Santa Rosa, from 2-6 p.m. on Sunday, May 16 and Sunday, May 23.
The Office of Education partnered with Safeway, the Sonoma County Department of Health Services and local school districts to host the clinics, which will administer the Pfizer vaccine.
“Being vaccinated is one of the best ways students can enjoy the academic and extracurricular aspects of school while protecting themselves, their families and their friends,” said Sonoma County Superintendent of Education Steve Herrington in the release.
Although people who register in advance will be prioritized, walk-ins also will be accepted. Students and their families are asked to bring photo identification, but those without ID will still be able to receive the vaccine.
The shot is free and no insurance is necessary to get the vaccine.
There will be Spanish translators at both clinics.
Students younger than 18 either will need to bring a parent or guardian or a written consent form, which can be printed from the online registration site.
