JCPS to host Louisville vaccination clinics | #students | #parents


The Jefferson County Public School system will host COVID-19 vaccine clinics at 24 locations Nov. 13-14 and will offer shots to JCPS children as young as 5. 

This comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention opened eligibility for children ages 5 to 11 on Tuesday after an advisory panel unanimously recommended the move. 

“I hope that this is our final big step in the fight against COVID,” JCPS superintendent Marty Pollio said Thursday after making the announcement at Central High School, which will be one of the sites.

“Our strong hope now is that every single family member, every single student and staff — 5 year old all the way up — will now have the opportunity to be vaccinated, and we believe that will be a game changer for us.”
