    FPS Hosted Vaccine Clinics (Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine for Students)

    The COVID-19 vaccine is the leading prevention strategy to keep from getting infected with the virus and spreading it to others. Every child 12 years of age and older is now eligible to get the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is very safe and highly effective at preventing infection. Help protect your whole family and our community and keep our students in school by consenting to have your child(ren) 12 years and older vaccinated against COVID-19 at our school-based vaccine clinics which take place during the school day.

COVID-19 Vaccines for Young People Under Age 18

COVID Vaccine

  • Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19. Currently, three vaccines are authorized and recommended to prevent COVID-19: the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen. You can read about them in detail here.

    EDUCATORS: All educators are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Staff can use the state’s pre-registration system to schedule appointments: mass.gov:COVID Vaccine Pre-registration. Once an educator has received their full vaccine dose, they should upload it to TalentEd to enhance the efficiencies of the COVID Team in contact tracing.

    SIDE EFFECTS: Some people experience vaccine side effects such as tiredness, headache, muscle pain, pain at the injection site or temperature less than 100.0°. These symptoms are normal signs that your body is building protection against the virus. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. If you experience these common minor symptoms in the first 72 hours after your vaccine and feel well enough, you can come to work. 

    Please remember it is possible to get COVID-19 even after you are vaccinated.

    If you have any other symptoms in addition to those listed above, such as runny nose, sore throat, cough, or loss of sense of smell or taste, stay home from work, avoid close contact with others, get PCR tested, and contact your healthcare provider. You can find frequently asked questions about COVID vaccine side effects on the Mass.gov website.

    It takes several weeks for the body to build immunity after getting the vaccine. Please continue to wear a mask, maintain 6ft physical distance, practice frequent hand washing/sanitizing, avoid large gatherings, and stay home when sick.

    Because vaccinated individuals are guided by different COVID-19 quarantine, isolation, and travel rules, we are asking staff to provide documentation of your COVID vaccines to HR through TalentEd once you are fully vaccinated. This will assist the COVID Team when contact tracing may be needed and potentially eliminate the need for you to quarantine. The District strongly encourages all employees to receive a vaccination, however, it is not mandated.
