DCPS encourages all students ages 12 and older and their parents, caregivers, and eligible siblings to get vaccinated. No appointment is needed, and Pfizer is the only vaccine offered for all people who stop by a school clinic. For anyone 12 to 17 years old, they will need a parent or guardian to sign a consent form at the vaccination clinic and acknowledge their relationship with the adolescent.

“The science is clear: vaccines are the single most effective tool we have to stop the spread of the coronavirus,” said DCPS Chancellor Lewis Ferebee. “To help meet our commitment to fully reopen schools for every student, every day in the fall, it is our responsibility as a community to get vaccinated, including our middle school and high school students.”

Students who are age 12 and older may also receive the Pfizer vaccine at any public walk-up site in addition to the pharmacies, clinics, and health care providers that are administering it citywide. Vaccine information for adolescents and adults is available at coronavirus.dc.gov/page/get-vaccinated.

While the COVID-19 vaccine is currently not required to attend school next year, DCPS students are required to have their childhood vaccinations up to date to participate in summer programming and to attend school in the fall. Families are encouraged to schedule well-child visits with their medical provider or one at of DC’s pediatric immunization locations and submit that documentation now as a part of the student’s enrollment packet for the 2021-2022 School Year.
