DUE TO LOW INTEREST, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED


As many of you know, the FDA has given full approval of the Pfizer vaccine as of Monday, August 23rd:

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine has been known as the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, and will now be marketed as Comirnaty (koe-mir’-na-tee), for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.”

The Department of Public Health and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education are offering Covid-19 vaccine clinics for students and their families.

We are pleased to announce that PVPA was able to schedule one of their mobile vaccine clinics for Monday, August 30, from 10AM-2PM.

This clinic is for our students, PVPA families and their friends and relatives.

MA DPH and DESE have contracted with Yankee Line to bring their mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic to PVPA.

We will be offering 1st and 2nd doses (as well as booster shots for anyone who is immunocompromised) of the Pfizer vaccine.

Please bring your identification and your vaccination card if you have already had your first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

We will be scheduling a follow up clinic for 3 weeks from the 30th so you can receive your 2nd vaccine. We will let you know the date as soon as the follow-up clinic is scheduled.
