The Festus R-6 School District will hold a back-to-school COVID-19 vaccination clinic from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, July 22, for anyone 12 and older.

Those seeking vaccinations do not have to be Festus R-6 students.

The clinic will be held in the basement of the Roy Burnside Administration Building, 1515 Mid-Meadow Lane, behind the Festus Intermediate School. The second dose will be administered during a clinic scheduled for 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 12, also at the Burnside Administration Building.

The Pfizer vaccine will be administered at the clinics.

Anyone younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to fill out the required consent forms.

Participants don’t have to pre-register but are asked to fill out a form so the pharmacist will know how many vaccines will be needed at the clinics. To complete the form, go to the Festus R-VI School District Facebook page and click on the link on the post about the vaccine clinic.
