Updated COVID19 Vaccination Information

posted May 12, 2021, 4:48 AM by Vincent Vanier

Dear Valley Unified Students, Parents, Families and Staff:

We are writing to inform you about an important opportunity for students ages 12 and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer vaccine. Yes, you read correctly, the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for emergency authorization by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use with children as young as 12 years. 

In our on-going efforts to keep our students, staff and schools safe and open for in-school instruction, we will continue to partner with St. John Valley Pharmacy to host Pfizer vaccine clinics at our three Valley Unified Middle/High Schools on the following dates and times:

This school year has presented many challenges for our students and their families, for our schools and staff, and for our communities. Over a year has passed since schools across the country, our state, and our Upper St. John Valley region closed for remote learning. We are pleased that our students have been in school for the majority of this school year and hope to build upon this successful foundation for the rest of this year and during 2021-2022. We believe voluntary vaccination against COVID-19 can help us achieve this goal. Stay safe and be well. 

Respectfully, 

Benjamin Sirois  

Superintendent of Schools
