Columbus Public Health to Offer Dedicated Vaccine Clinics for CCS Staff and Students

Vaccine clinics

Oct. 1, 2021 -- Columbus Public Health (CPH) and Columbus City Schools (CCS) are partnering to provide dedicated vaccine clinics for CCS staff and students during the month of October. 

CPH will be stationed at a CCS high school location each Thursday in October from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. to administer booster doses and first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as the flu shot, to all eligible recipients. 

Education staff, which includes all CCS employees, are eligible to receive the booster dose immediately, provided that they initially received the Pfizer vaccine series at least six months ago. Those who received the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine are not eligible for the booster dose. Click here for more information from the CDC about booster doses.

CPH will be at these school locations from 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.:

  • October 7 - Briggs High School (gym)
  • October 14 - Columbus Africentric (field house)
  • October 21 - Beechcroft High School (gym)
  • October 28 - Linden-McKinley STEM Academy (middle school gym)

All CCS teachers, staff, and students can access these dedicated clinics regardless of where they work or attend school. No appointment is needed.

Students who are eligible (ages 12 and older) for the COVID-19 vaccine can also access the CCS clinics after school hours (2:30 - 6:00 p.m.). Students under the age of 18 must have a signed consent form from their parent or guardian to receive the first dose of the vaccine.

In addition to CCS clinic locations, teachers and staff can go to any pharmacy or medical provider who offers the booster dose to receive it. Click here for information on additional CPH vaccine locations

Masks are required to be worn by all staff, students, and visitors at these clinics in CCS buildings.
