COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics for Students 5-11 Years of Age at Your Student's School

  • Vaccine clinic information for students ages 5-11

    Columbus City Schools is partnering with Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Columbus Public Health to provide dedicated COVID-19 vaccine clinics for students ages 5-11 at every CCS elementary school in December and January.

    The District will host the clinics at every elementary school during regular school hours to all eligible recipients age 5-11:

    • December 13-17 to administer first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine
    • January 3-7 to administer the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine

    To get a COVID-19 vaccine, parents must complete and return the COVID-19 consent form, no later than December 7.

    Consent forms can be completed electronically or by paper copy and returned to your school nurse.

    All elementary students aged 5 to 11 can access these dedicated clinics.

    Once the student receives the vaccination, they will be observed in a designated waiting area for 15-minutes before they are permitted to return to their classroom.

    Are Parents Required to be Present?

    Parents are not required to be present when the vaccine is administered. If a parent wants to be present, they will have the opportunity to schedule an appointment after school hours with an outside health agency providing the vaccine.

    Will the Vaccine be Offered to Parents/Guardians or Children 12 and older?

    The vaccine will not be offered to parents/guardians or children ages 12 and older at these clinics. For a list of locations providing the COVID-19 vaccine to ages 12+, visit NationwideChildrens.org/Vaccine or gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov.

    If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.
