County to hold school-based COVID-19 vaccine clinic for 5-11 year olds

Update 11-10-21: All appointments have been filled. The district is hoping to secure additional appointments and will share information on the website and directly with families if more become available.

Fayetteville-Manlius School District is partnering with Onondaga County to offer a 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. Tuesday, Nov. 16, at F-M High School (House 1). The clinic is only for children who are 5-11 years old and currently live within F-M School District’s attendance boundaries.

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. Please use the House 1 security entrance at the auditorium.

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

  1. Register for an appointment.
  2. A parent or legal guardian must complete the consent form that was emailed to families on Nov. 9.
  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 county’s clinic at F-M on Nov. 16 will receive information about a follow-up clinic (which will be held in early December) 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.
