All children aged 12 to 17 are eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID vaccine. Bethel school district officials say the state Department of Public Health asked Superintendents to communicate that if a child receives their first dose of the vaccine by today, they will be fully vaccinated by the start of school. Connecticut still maintains their COVID vaccine portal, so residents can locate a clinic by zip code. All the major pharmacies have appointments or will take a walk- in. Any questions about the vaccine should be directed to the family doctor. Any child who has been vaccinated, is asked to email the school nurse and provide a copy or photo of the immunization card.
