The Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH), CA BOCES, and Allegany County Schools are working together to offer Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to students age 12 and up in each of the twelve Allegany County public school districts including the Belmont BOCES site. The first dose will be offered on either Wednesday, May 26, or Thursday, May 27. A plan is in the works to vaccinate students at schools located near each other on the same day using several teams of ACDOH staff.
Do you have a student age 12 and up? Check their back pack and take home folder for more information. Here is what you are looking for:
- Guidance for COVID-19 Vaccine Access for Persons age 12 to 17
- Safety and Effectiveness Q & A
- Vaccine Consent Form
- Pfizer Fact Sheet
These forms are also available to print from the Allegany County website at : https://www.alleganyco.com/coronavirus/covid-19-vaccine-information/student-vaccination-forms/
Parents don’t miss your opportunity to have your student(s) age 12 and up vaccinated for COVID-19 at their school. Participating schools will be sending home a packet including a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine fact sheet, a registration form, and a vaccine consent form.
Watch for the packets at the end of this week. Turnaround time is quick; if you are interested, get the forms completed and back to school on Monday, May 24. Schools will be giving the ACDOH a count on Tuesday. Make sure you have your paperwork turned in to be counted. Schools that do not have enough interest may not be added to the schedule on these two days.
Remember if your student(s) has dose one of Pfizer on May 26 or May 27, they will need the second dose in 21 days. ACDOH will arrange with the schools to return for the second dose on Wednesday, June 16, or Thursday, June 17.
Please call your school district or the Allegany County Department of Health at 585-268-9250 with questions.
