COVID-19 vaccine clinics aim to reach #FCPSCommunityImmunity
Help us achieve #FCPSCommunityImmunity by signing up to receive the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine! Fayette County Public Schools has partnered with the city of Lexington, HealthFirst Bluegrass, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, and Wild Health to offer the vaccine at district school locations July 6, 7, and 8. Second doses will be available at the same locations July 27, 28, and 29. There is no cost, and each site is open to anyone regardless of school enrollment, attendance, or residence.
Everyone 12 or older is eligible to be vaccinated. Students who receive their first and second dose before the end of July would be fully vaccinated the first week of school. If a student is between 12 and 17, a parent/guardian will need to complete an online consent form or be present at the clinic to provide consent. When registering, please reserve a spot for both the first and second dose. All the clinics will offer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, which is administered as a shot in the arm as a series of two doses, three weeks apart. Studies show this vaccine is 95% effective at preventing COVID-19 illness.
Select the date pairing and location that works best for your schedule, and click on the school name to access the registration details. All clinics will run from 1 to 6 p.m. on the designated day. Please note that the registration links are specific to the health organization administering the vaccine at that site.
