Experts advise that vaccines are — without question — the best defense against serious illness or hospitalization from COVID-19. Fayette County Public Schools and community partners offer free COVID-19 vaccination clinics at various locations. If a student is under 18, a parent/guardian must complete an online consent form or be present to provide consent. A parent or guardian must be there with children ages 5-11.
You can make an appointment for any location, regardless of where you live or attend school. (If schools are closed because of weather, the clinics are canceled.)
