Health Department Bringing Vaccine Clinics to Local Schools
Health department running clinics to vaccinate children ages five to 11.
A new effort from the Milwaukee Health Department will bring COVID-19 vaccinations to Milwaukee schools in an effort to reach younger children.
The vaccine clinics are a partnership between the Milwaukee Health Department, Milwaukee Public Schools, Seton Catholic Schools and Children’s Wisconsin. There will be 22 clinics in total: 12 at MPS locations, and 10 at Seton Catholic Schools.
There also are doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine available for those over the age of 18.
No appointments are needed for students or the general public. Kids under 18 will need parental permission to get the shot. MPS is providing permission slips for parents to allow their children to get the vaccine. Parents can also accompany their child and give permission.
MPS students who attend schools that are not on the list can get vaccinated at any of these clinics.
Emily Tau, marketing and communications officer for the Milwaukee Health Department, said there will also be flu vaccines administered at the clinics. Kids can get both their COVID-19 and flu shots in the same day, according to recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The schedule for the clinics was made with the holidays in mind, allowing the last children to be vaccinated 10 days before Christmas and 14 days before New Year’s.
Guidelines from the CDC state that a person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second shot.
