As of November 3, 2021, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is now available for children ages 5 and older.
Vaccination is the best tool we have to keep our students safe from COVID-19, maintain in-person learning and prevent closure of schools and cancellation of extracurricular activities. And vaccination, paired with other layered prevention strategies (such as masking, testing, tracing and distancing) can significantly limit COVID-19 transmission.
