Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is partnering with Seattle Visiting Nurse’s Association (SVNA) to offer free COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics for eligible LWSD students, families, and staff. SVNA is preparing to administer more than 4,000 doses at four clinics the weekend of May 22 and 23.
“Now that our secondary students 12 and older are eligible to be immunized, we are excited to work with SVNA to make it easier for families to access vaccinations for their children,” stated Dr. Jon Holmen, Superintendent. “We know that for many of our students, becoming vaccinated will open opportunities for them to re-engage in typical activities at school, with their friends, and in the community that many have missed out on for more than a year.”
Registration information for the clinics was sent out to families via the district newsletter and email. Automated phone calls and text messages will be sent as a reminder to families early next week. Staff received information about the event via the district’s staff newsletter.
King County Public Health has created a resource for families with information on COVID-19 Vaccination for Children and Teens: COVID-19 Vaccination for Children and Teens - King County
