Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying Information
Here is some information on the Covid vaccine for students age 5 through 11 years. I also have a reminder on Covid symptoms and testing.
If your child is going to receive the Covid Vaccine, please provide a copy of their vaccine card/ Immunization record to the Health Office. The vaccine will be documented in their Health File. The Pfizer Vaccine is now available for ages 5 through 11 years. It is a two- dose series, given three weeks apart. You are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after the second dose. The fact sheet is available at https://www.fda.gov/media/153717/download. To find a vaccine site, visit covid19.nj.gov/finder. Some Pharmacies and Pediatrician offices may also be providing the vaccine or having clinics.
