While schools are not demanding all students are receiving the COVID vaccine at the moment, they are should play an important role in the vaccination of pupils. Less than a week after Lodi District hosted its first school-wide vaccination clinic for students, District Administrator Vince Breunig is already planning a second one, which he hopes will will take place before the end of the semester.
âHaving it in a school shows we think it’s safe,â Breunig said. “It’s just one more step towards a return to normalcy.”
Vaccinated students no longer need to self-quarantine when exposed to someone with COVID, which keeps them in class and eligible to participate in extracurricular activities.
Host clinics at schools also provide additional convenience to parents.
âWe are able to get them in, out and back to class so parents don’t have to find time in their day,â said Brian Borowski, principal of Waunakee High School.
Two months after partnering with SSM Health to immunize all teachers, Waunakee is preparing to host its first district-wide student immunization clinic this Thursday, May 13 from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
As per CDC guidelines, all students 12 and older will be able to receive their first set of plans, with the second set just before summer vacation.
âNext fall seems to be, which I always hope is very normal for all of us,â Borowski said, adding: âBecause that’s what we’re desperately looking for.â
