Optional Vaccination Clinics for 5-11 Year Olds

Woodland District 50 Optional Vaccination Clinics for 5-11 Year Olds
Woodland D50 is excited to bring optional vaccination clinics to our younger students now that the COVID19 Vaccine has been approved for 5-11 year olds. This is welcome news for many of our families who have been waiting for this added layer of protection for your child(ren). This is also good news for our school community as it will continue to enhance overall safety in our schools as more of our population is vaccinated.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) optional vaccination clinics will be held at Woodland Elementary on the following dates. Two doses are necessary for this vaccine and they are given three weeks apart. Please schedule an appointment for the 1st and 2nd dose using the links below. The vaccine is free.

(Participant names will not be viewable to others)

Please note:
A parent or legal guardian must be present to give consent for a child to receive this vaccine. We ask that only one adult attend if possible to limit the number of people, and to help with social distancing.

There are many options for getting the vaccine through local pharmacies and other health partners, so you do not need to wait for this clinic. We are only providing this opportunity because we want to make scheduling this important safety measure as easy as possible for our learning community. If you have questions about the vaccine, please consult with your child’s pediatrician.
