More Vaccine Clinic Sites Added

COVID-19 Vaccine Available for Ages 12 and Up

Dear Parent/Guardian:

FCPS received a tremendous response to this week’s announcement of our partnership with the Fairfax County Health Department to offer COVID-19 vaccination opportunities for students (ages 12 and up) at several high school locations. (See below.)

Due to this outstanding response, we have added additional schools and vaccine events that will take place June 1-10. 

It’s not too late! The registration window closes at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 20.

Please note that your students will be assigned to a school based on proximity to their base schools and that transportation to and from your child’s base school will be provided by FCPS. 

Students will receive vaccinations during the school day, between 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Parents/guardians must register their students for their vaccination with the Fairfax County Health Department, and written consent must be received by 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 20, for your student to participate. Please register now

Week 2 vaccine clinic events will take place:

Thursday, June 10, Falls Church High School, 7521 Jaguar Trail, Falls Church, 22042

The new opportunities above are in addition to those previously announced clinics: 

Transportation will be provided:

  • Transportation to and from the vaccination clinic will be provided to all students from their base school. 
  • Virtual students will need to be dropped off and picked up at the base school. 
  • In-person (face-to-face) students will participate in their normal daily schedule before and after the appointment and will still ride their normal  bus to and from school for the day. 

It is important to register as soon as possible to ensure that your student will be able to take advantage of this opportunity. If maximum capacity is reached, families will be referred to the nearest vaccine clinic for an appointment.

Let’s work together to stop the spread of COVID-19. See why some FCPS teens are getting vaccinated. For more information, including other opportunities for COVID vaccination in Fairfax County, visit the Fairfax County Health Department at COVID-19 Vaccine | Health (fairfaxcounty.gov).
