Cabell County Schools is once again offering students age 16 and older an opportunity to receive their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine during the school day.
Working with its partners at the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, Valley Health Systems, Marshall University School of Pharmacy, Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and the West Virginia Department of Education, the district will operate student vaccine clinics at its high school facilities this week on the following schedule:
Cabell Midland High School - Wednesday, April 14, 8:00 AM
Huntington High School - Thursday, April 15, 8:00 AM
Release forms have already been sent home with students. Forms must be signed by a legal parent or guardian and returned to the school before a student may receive a vaccination. A printable copy of the form is available for download below.
Again, a student must be 16 years of age or older to be eligible to receive the vaccine. Students should not have received any other vaccine, within 14 days prior to the school-based vaccination clinic and should not receive any vaccine until 14 days after the second dose has been given.
A date for students to receive the recommended second dose of the Pfizer vaccine will be announced in the future. If you have COVID-19 or vaccine-related questions or concerns, please contact the Cabell-Huntington Health Department’s COVID-19 hotline by calling (304) 526-3383.
