Vaccine Clinic on Monday, February 28th
Our school is hosting a Vaccine Clinic from 2PM to 6PM. I have received a few questions about why we are doing a third clinic at our school. One of our goals at Saint Peter is to partner with community organizations to make sure all of our students have what they need. Whether it is a partnership with Cambridge BINGO, Nutrition For Learning, or Public Health, outside organizations partner with us to support families in our community on a regular basis. Many people have already received their vaccine, if that was their intention to do so. However, there may be some people reading this that, for whatever reason, have not booked an appointment and might want the opportunity to get the vaccine. Perhaps they were working during the previous clinics or did not have transportation to a different location.
In order to ensure that everyone has access to this vaccine, the third clinic is taking place around pick-up time. AND No appointments are necessary. This is strictly for Saint Peter families who want to access this for their first, second or booster shot.
If you are concerned that your child’s learning will be impacted by the clinic, please rest assured that the clinic is taking place in the library and no students are participating without a parent present to give consent.
There are many strong opinions on the topic of vaccination, but we can all agree that one of our core values at Saint Peter is ensuring education is an equitable experience. Everybody is working hard to make sure our students get what they need to be successful. For some it might be some extra food if they forgot a lunch. For others, it might be a little more time to complete an assignment. Yet another might need a visual support instead of an explanation in words. Wherever we currently sit on the Vaccine issue, we all understand that a hassle-free, no appointment necessary clinic might be what some of our families need in this moment.
Thank you for your continued support as we move forward together.
