NPS Vaccination
  • Norfolk Public Schools is working with the Norfolk Department of Public Health to provide an opportunity for NPS’ students, 16 years of age and older, to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination during the week of May 10, 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 event. (18-year-old students must complete a form, but can sign for themselves.) The forms will be available at your respective high schools and can be downloaded from this webpage beginning Monday, May 3, 2021. You can scan or take a picture of the completed and signed form and e-mail it, or turn it in to your homeroom teacher. The deadline to return the completed and signed consent form is Friday, May 7, 2021. 

    The Pfizer vaccine has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in individuals aged 16 and 17 years old with parental permission. The vaccinations will be held at NPS high 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.

    For further questions not covered here, or in the FAQs down below, please contact your respective high school, or the Department of Student Wellness at (757) 628-3928.
