COVID Vaccines for Students 12 and Older
This Fall, in partnership with the Alachua County Health Department, Alachua County Public Schools will continue to schedule vaccination clinics at middle and high schools for students 12 and older. Students will be able to get both doses of the vaccine for free during the school day.
Students ages 12 and older are eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which is delivered in two doses, about three weeks apart. ACPS employees who work in middle and high schools can participate on their school's scheduled day.
Vaccine Consent Forms
Students ages 12 to 17 must have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian for each vaccination. Students 18 and older may sign their own forms.
These forms should be submitted to your school nurse within 10 days of each vaccination clinic. Students can bring the form with them on the day of their school’s clinic, although we ask that you return the form ahead of time to help your school and the Health Department organize the clinics. Again, the consent form must be signed for a student to receive the vaccine.
