Please see the following information regarding an area opportunity for students ages 16 and older to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Mid-Ohio ESC and Galion City Schools in partnership with Discount Drug Mart, Richland County Public Health, Crawford County Public Health, and Galion Health Department will be hosting two voluntary student vaccination clinics for any students ages 16 and older in Richland and Crawford counties.
The following two options are available for students to register and receive their first vaccination. The second vaccination clinics will be held three weeks after the first clinic.
**Registration closes: Monday, April 19 @ noon **
Children ages 16 and 17 who are not emancipated must have parent or legal guardian consent. Parents and guardians are not required to accompany the minor to receive the vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine will be used for these clinics and is authorized for ages 16 and older. At this time, students will be the only ones able to receive the vaccination at these two clinics. The local health departments along with other local providers have indicated that they have availability for any parents that are interested in receiving the vaccination.
The vaccination registration will be a two-step process:
- Students interested in receiving the vaccination will need to pre-register (name, date of birth, cell phone, and school email) by clicking on the appropriate link in one of the two boxes above. The deadline to register is April 19 @ noon.
- Once registration is closed (April 19 @ noon), students will receive a scheduling notification where they will be able to select their time slot to receive the vaccination.
Students will be required to bring with them on the day of the clinic, a completed consent form (with parent signature) along with a form of ID (driver’s license/permit, school ID, or birth certificate).
To be excused from school for the vaccine, students and their families will need to follow their school’s procedures for medical appointment.
To provide additional information and answer any questions for the upcoming student vaccination clinics for students in Richland & Crawford counties, a Q&A Zoom conference meeting will be held on Sunday, April 18th 2:00 p.m.
