COVID Vaccine Clinics for Students 5 – 11

Summary: Families that wish to have their 5 - 11 year old student receive a COVID-19 vaccine have several options including vaccine clinics at SPS schools.

Seattle Schools COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics for Students 5 – 11 years

One of the biggest concerns throughout the pandemic has been the lack of a pediatric COVID-19 vaccination for children 11 and under. Vaccination is our most important line of defense against the virus and being vaccinated also reduces the loss of vital in-person instruction time at school. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19 and help to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free.

On November 2, 2021, the CDC formally recommended the Pfizer pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for 5–11-year-olds. For those of you wishing to have your child vaccinated, there will be a variety of accessible options including your regular doctor’s office or clinic, your local pharmacy, as well as community vaccination sites and community clinics. To find a clinic, pharmacy, or vaccination site near you, use Washington State’s Vaccine Locator.

In addition, Seattle Public Schools is doing our part to ensure that students can be fully vaccinated and protected from the COVID-19 virus. SPS is partnering with Public Health Seattle & King County to host COVID-19 vaccination clinics for students 5 years and older at many schools across the city.

First-dose clinics will run from November 8 through November 23. Second-dose clinics will be offered from November 29 through December 14.

Find a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

There are two types of school vaccine clinics that will be available.

The Pfizer vaccination requires two shots. Students should plan to be available for both school clinic dates to receive both doses of the vaccine.

Regional Clinics – Vaccines for All SPS Students

14 regional clinics held on weekends or evenings. Any SPS student 5 years and older can attend with their parent or guardian to receive either the pediatric dose for 5–11-year-olds or the regular dose for 12 years and up. Find a regional clinic.

Clinics at Individual Schools

40 school-day clinics at individual schools offered specifically for students enrolled at those schools. SPS vaccine clinics are organized to prioritize families who face more barriers to vaccination. View the schools offering vaccine clinics.

Other Options for Families

Where else can families go?

Beginning November 15, the federal government is increasing the number of vaccines provided to local pharmacies. Check with your local pharmacy (often provided on their website) or search for a nearby appointment on the Washington Vaccine Locator or UW Medical websites.

Regional Clinics

Regional clinics are open to all SPS students who are 5 years and older. Students do not have to be enrolled in that specific school. SPS vaccine clinics are organized to prioritize families who face more barriers to vaccination. Please attend the clinic in the area that is convenient to where you live.

There may be scarcity in vaccine supply in the first few weeks after approval, but should stabilize after a few weeks and eventually, everyone will be able to get vaccinated. If a clinic needs to be postponed due to vaccine supply, we will re-schedule the clinic as soon as possible.

At the regional clinics, students under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The Pfizer vaccination requires two shots. Students should plan to be available for both school clinic dates to receive both doses of the vaccine.

School-Day Clinics

School-Day clinics are only for students enrolled in that school where the clinic is held. SPS vaccine clinics are organized to prioritize families who face more barriers to vaccination.

There may be scarcity in vaccine supply in the first few weeks after approval, but should stabilize after a few weeks and eventually, everyone will be able to get vaccinated. If a clinic needs to be postponed due to vaccine supply, we will re-schedule the clinic as soon as possible.

Parents and guardians are welcomed to accompany their student to a school day clinic. Because the clinics will be inside schools during the school day, adults must be prepared to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test from the past 72 hours.

At school-day clinics, students may attend without a parent/guardian if the parent/guardian has signed a consent form (digital or paper) in advance. If a parent or guardian is unable to give written consent, a school nurse may be able to accept verbal consent if circumstances allow. Please contact your school to learn if this is possible.

The Pfizer vaccination requires two shots. Students should plan to be available for both school clinic dates to receive both doses of the vaccine.

How to Register and Consent to Vaccinating Your Child

  • We are working with three different medical providers, and each provider has their own registration and consent forms. To find out what is needed at your local clinic, please visit the school clinic, which will include specific instructions for that clinic. If you do not have access to online registration, please contact your child’s school.
  • A parent or guardian will need to sign a consent form for their student to be vaccinated. Forms are available in multiple languages.
  • Insurance is not required for these vaccinations for your child, and there is no cost to students or families. Most medical providers will ask for insurance to cover administrative costs, however, please note that it is not required.

Requirements for Parents and Guardians

A parent or guardian must accompany their student to a regional clinic, and they are also welcomed to accompany their student to a school day clinic.

At school-day clinics, students may attend without a parent/guardian if the parent/guardian has signed a consent form (digital or paper) in advance. A parent/guardian may also give verbal consent to a school nurse. Please contact your school to do this.

Preparing Your Child for Vaccination

  • Have your child wear short sleeves or loose-fitting sleeves that are easy to roll up (with a jacket or sweater for warmth)
  • Be honest with your child: Your child needs to know that they will be getting a shot. Your conversation with your child could go something like this, “Today we are going to get your COVID-19 vaccine. We’ve been waiting for this for so long. It’s exciting to know you will be protected.” If your child asks if it will hurt, you can say, “It will be a quick poke, like when you get other vaccinations. The poke will be over quickly and after that, you’ll get a Band-Aid.”
  • It may be helpful to bring a book or small toy to help distract your child. You may also want to have something for your child to do during the short waiting period after vaccination. Everyone is monitored for 15-30 minutes after vaccination to make sure there is no allergic reaction. In the rare cases of allergic reaction, staff are trained to provide treatment immediately.
