In light of the recent CDC approval of the Pfizer vaccine for anyone ages 12 and older, Watauga County Schools will hold four school-based vaccination clinics over the next two weeks for students in that age range and their parents.
WCS Superintendent Scott Elliott said the shots are available to anyone in the community regardless of school enrollment.
Children under the age of age 18 will require written parental consent to receive a shot. The Pfizer vaccine will be provided free of charge by Boone Drugs.
Those interested may register in advance for the clinic of their choice using the links below.
The clinics will be held at the dates and times listed below.
