Attn: Families of students who received their first Pfizer dose during our middle school clinics that were held on May 18 or May 24.

Dear Families,

We hope you are having a great week. We will once again partner with the Chickahominy Health District to hold vaccine clinics at all of our middle schools specifically for HCPS students who received their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine during our clinics that were held on May 18 or May 24. These clinics will allow these students to get their second dose. Only students who received the first dose at the prior middle school clinics and are 12 years of age or older are eligible.

The second dose vaccine clinics for eligible students will be held as follows:

- Bell Creek Middle School: Monday, June 14 from 9-11 a.m. and 4-6 p.m.
- Chickahominy Middle School: Tuesday, June 8 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
- Liberty Middle School: Tuesday, June 8 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
- Oak Knoll Middle School: Monday, June 14 from 9-11 a.m. and 4-6 p.m.

Similar to the first round of clinics at our middle schools, the 9-11 a.m. and 1:30-3:30 p.m. sessions are for eligible middle school students only and are not open to the general public. The 4-6 p.m. clinics are for all other HCPS middle and high school students who received their first dose at a prior middle school clinic and need their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

For the clinics during the school day, middle school students must return a completed permission form, which was also required for the first-dose clinics.

All students who are vaccinated after school hours (during the 4-6 p.m. clinics) must either be accompanied by:

- a parent or guardian, or
- someone 18 years old or older and have a completed parental permission form


Please note that whomever accompanies the student to the 4-6 p.m. clinic may receive their second dose of the vaccine as well, if needed.

A fact sheet on the Pfizer vaccine can be found on the FDA website. For community members who still need a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, please contact the Health District at (804) 365-3240, and they will schedule you an appointment at the Ashland Junction clinic location.

Thank you.

Dear Families,

We hope you are having a great week. We are writing today with an important update about the COVID-19 vaccine and our schools.

Earlier this week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the emergency use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine to be administered to children 12 through 15 years of age. The vaccine has already been authorized for children 16 years old and above.

With the expanded eligibility, we are proudly partnering with the Chickahominy Health District to hold vaccine clinics for students inside our four middle schools later this month. The vaccine clinics will be held as follows:

- Bell Creek Middle School: Monday, May 24 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
- Chickahominy Middle School: Tuesday, May 18 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
- Liberty Middle School: Tuesday, May 18 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
- Oak Knoll Middle School: Monday, May 24 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.

Please note that the 1:30-3:30 p.m. clinics are for students only and are not open to the general public. The 4-6 p.m. clinics are for all other HCPS middle and high school students who are 12 years of age or older and want a vaccine, no appointment necessary and while supplies last.

For the 1:30-3:30 p.m. clinics, students must return a completed permission form to get vaccinated. All students who are vaccinated during the 4-6 p.m. event must either be accompanied by:

- a parent or guardian, or
- someone 18 years old or older and have a completed parental permission form


Whomever accompanies the student to the 4-6 p.m. clinic may receive their first dose of the vaccine as well.

To assist us in our planning efforts for these clinics, please complete this survey if you would like your student to receive the vaccine during one of these clinics.

You can find a fact sheet for the Pfizer vaccine on the FDA website. For questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, please contact the Health District at (804) 365-3240.

Thank you.

Queridas Familias,

Esperamos que estén teniendo una gran semana. Hoy estamos escribiendo con una actualización importante sobre la vacuna COVID-19 y nuestras escuelas.

A principios de esta semana, la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos de Estados Unidos (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) autorizó el uso de emergencia de la vacuna COVID-19 de Pfizer para administrarla a niños/as de 12 a 15 años de edad. La vacuna ya está autorizada para niños/as de 16 años o más.

Con la elegibilidad ampliada, nos asociamos con orgullo con el Distrito de Salud Chickahominy (Chickahominy Health District) para tener clínicas de vacunas para los estudiantes dentro de nuestras cuatro escuelas intermedias a finales de este mes. Las clínicas de vacunas se llevarán a cabo de la siguiente manera:

- Escuela Intermedia Bell Creek: Lunes 24 de mayo de 1:30-3:30 p.m. y 4-6 p.m.
- Escuela Intermedia Chickahominy: Martes 18 de mayo de 1:30-3:30 p.m. y 4-6 p.m.
- Escuela Intermedia Liberty: Martes 18 de mayo de 1:30-3:30 p.m. y 4-6 p.m.
- Escuela Intermedia Oak Knoll: Lunes 24 de mayo de 1:30-3:30 p.m. y 4-6 p.m.

Por favor noten que las clínicas de 1:30-3:30 p.m. son solo para estudiantes y no están abiertas al público general. Las clínicas de 4-6 p.m. son para todos los demás estudiantes de escuela intermedia y secundaria de HCPS que tienen 12 años o más y quieren una vacuna, no se necesita cita y mientras duren los suministros.

Para las clínicas de 1:30-3:30 p.m., los estudiantes deben devolver un formulario de permiso completado para vacunarse. Todos los estudiantes que estén vacunados durante el evento de 4 a 6 p.m. deben ir acompañados de:

- un padre/ madre o tutor, o
- alguien de 18 años o más y tener un formulario de permiso de los padres completado


Quien acompaña al estudiante a la clínica de 4-6 p.m. también puede recibir su primera dosis de la vacuna.

Para ayudarnos en nuestros esfuerzos de planificación para estas clínicas, complete esta encuesta si desea que su estudiante reciba la vacuna durante una de estas clínicas.

Puede encontrar una hoja informativa para la vacuna Pfizer en el sitio web de la FDA. Para preguntas sobre la vacuna COVID-19, comuníquese con el Distrito de Salud al (804) 365-3240.

Gracias.
