Additional school-based COVID-19 vaccine clinic for 5-11 year olds scheduled

Fayetteville-Manlius School District is partnering with Kinney Drugs to offer another free COVID-19 vaccine clinic for eligible district residents ages 5-11 years old.

The on-campus Pfizer vaccine clinic will take place by appointment only, 4:30-8:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 13, at Mott Road Elementary School. The clinic is only for children who currently live within F-M School District’s attendance boundaries, are 5-11 years old and have not yet received a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. (Children who received their first vaccine dose at the Nov. 16 clinic at F-M High School are reminded to return to the school Tuesday, Dec. 7 at the same time as their previous appointment for their second dose.)

A parent or legal guardian must accompany their child to the vaccine appointment and should be prepared to present a valid, government-issued photo identification at the building entrance.

If you and/or your student would like to participate in the clinic:

  1. Register for an appointment.
  2. A parent or legal guardian must complete the consent form that was emailed to families on Dec. 1.
  3. A parent or legal guardian must bring the completed consent form with them to their child’s appointment.

The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses to develop an immune response to COVID-19. All individuals who participate in the clinic at F-M on Dec. 13 will receive information about a follow-up clinic (which will be held in early January) at their first appointment.

Appointments for the clinic at F-M are limited. Families who are unable to secure an appointment for this clinic should contact their child’s primary healthcare provider, retail pharmacies or visit Onondaga County’s COVID-19 website for more information about upcoming vaccine clinics.
