County to hold school-based COVID-19 vaccine clinic for 12-15 year olds

Fayetteville-Manlius School District is partnering with Onondaga County to offer a free COVID-19 vaccine clinic for eligible F-M students 12-15 years old and their family members.

The on-campus Pfizer vaccine clinic will take place noon to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 18, at F-M High School. Parents and guardians of any middle school students registered to receive the vaccine at the May 18 clinic will be responsible for transporting their child from their school to the high school. The district will not be providing transportation between schools for the clinic. 

All family members, remote students and middle school students and their accompanied family members who register to receive the vaccine at the clinic should enter the high school using the House 1 security entrance at the auditorium. Family members must 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 county’s clinic:

  1. Register online to secure a vaccination appointment. The clinic location is F-M High School.
  2. All participants must bring with them to the clinic a completed and signed COVID-19 vaccine consent form. Each student must have the form signed by a parent/guardian.
  3. A COVID-19 vaccine form must also be completed on behalf of the individual receiving the vaccine.

The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses to develop an immune response to COVID-19. All individuals who participate in the county’s clinic at F-M on May 18 will be automatically scheduled to return to the same location at the same time on Tuesday, June 8 to receive the second vaccine dose.

Reminder: County holding vaccine clinic for second dose on May 18

F-M High School students who received their first vaccine dose on April 27 at F-M will receive their second dose on Tuesday, May 18.

Students should report to the on-campus clinic at the same time as they did for their first dose, and must bring with them their COVID-19 vaccination card, a completed and signed COVID-19 consent form and photo identification.

Students who need to confirm the appointment time for their second dose should check in with the Counseling Center on May 18 in the morning.
