D.C. Public Schools Open COVID Vaccine Clinics

District of Columbia Public Schools will open their coronavirus vaccine clinics for students and families beginning Tuesday.

The clinics are being operated in partnership with the D.C. Health Department and Safeway Pharmacies, WJLA-TV (Channel 7) reported. People who visit a D.C. public school for an inoculation must be 12 or older to get the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccination.

Appointments aren’t necessary, WJLA reported.

Students won’t be required to be vaccinated to attend classes for the upcoming school year but they will have to be up to date on their childhood immunizations.

D.C. Schools Chancellor Lewis Ferebee said “the science is clear: vaccines are the single-most effective tool we have to stop the spread of the coronavirus.”

The vaccine will be offered at the following school locations and times:

– Ida B. Wells Middle School, 405 Sheridan StNW

Use main entrance and follow directions to the gymnasium; Wednesday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2 p.m.-7 p.m.
