NYC will receive 231,000 pediatric COVID vaccine doses next week. How will shots get in-arms?
New York City parents and caregivers are likely days away from making appointments to get COVID vaccines for their children ages 5 to 11 — but city officials have yet to reveal what role, if any, schools will play in vaccine distribution.
While the education department hosted clinics in nearly 800 schools this fall for children aged 12 and older, it’s unclear if there are plans to add sites at elementary schools or expand eligibility at current school-based sites to include kids 5 to 11. Education officials said in a statement that they are “working closely with the Department of Health in anticipation of the expansion of vaccine eligibility to younger students.”
Mayor Bill de Blasio was vague when asked about the potential of administering shots at elementary schools in a recent press conference.
