NPS Vaccination
  • Norfolk Public Schools is working with the Norfolk Department of Public Health to provide opportunities for NPS’ students, 12 years of age and older, to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine starting June 7, 2021. 

    This week, we will be providing students with additional information and a consent form that must be completed, signed, and returned in order to participate in the clinics. (18-year-old students must complete a form, but can sign for themselves.) The forms will be available at your respective schools and can be downloaded from this webpage now. You can scan or take a picture of the completed and signed form and e-mail it, turn it in to your homeroom teacher, or bring the completed and signed form to the vaccine clinic site on the day of your child’s vaccination. 

    The Pfizer vaccine has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in individuals aged 12 and up with parental permission. The vaccinations will be held at various NPS school sites and run by Norfolk Department of Public Health staff with support from NPS employees. 

    There is no cost associated with receiving the vaccine and insurance information is not needed. The vaccine will be available to students that are participating in both in-person and virtual learning.

    The vaccination schedule is as follows: (Middle School vaccination clinics run June 7-17, 2021.)
