The FDA has expanded emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccine to 12 to 15 year olds. The Pfizer vaccine is readily available in pediatrician’s offices, pharmacies, and stand alone clinics for high school age groups. It is largely recognized as being safe and effective in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and preventing serious symptoms in rare breakthrough cases.
We recognize vaccination is a family decision made with input from pediatricians or medical providers. Salesianum will not be requiring the COVID vaccine for the fall, but strongly supports vaccination as a means for our school community to transition back to normal. If you have questions, please contact our School Nurse, Suzanne Mansi, at firstname.lastname@example.org. >>Delaware Vaccination Information
