UPDATE: Vaccine Booster Shots for ACPS Employees
ACPS is working with the Alachua County Health Department to offer the boosters to eligible employees at the same time FluMist is given to students. Clinics have been scheduled at all elementary schools starting next week and running through October, and at all Middle and high school clinics in November (see below)
To be eligible an employee must have had the Pfizer vaccine and it must be six months since their second shot. Employees who have not yet received any COVID vaccination could also get it at the school clinic.
Employees will need to bring their photo ID and vaccination card to the clinic. They will also need to bring the vaccine consent form.
The Health Department will also be giving employees COVID vaccinations, including boosters, at the ACPS Employee Health Fair at Gainesville High School on October 15. Shots will be available at the Fair from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Vaccinations, including boosters, are also available every day at the Health Department at 224 SE 24th Street in Gainesville. Vaccinations are given Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. These are walk-in clinics, no registration is needed.
