Authorization and Consent for the Medical Treatment of a Minor (COVID-19 Vaccination) - REQUIRED FOR CHILD TO RECEIVE VACCINE
The Chautauqua County Department of Health will be offering a free and voluntary Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine clinic to all remote and in-person students ages 12 and older and their parents here in the Frewsburg Central School District on Thursday, May 20th.
The clinic will open at 9:30 a.m. at RHJ Elementary and then move to the Middle-High School at around 11:00 a.m. If you would like one or more of your children to receive the vaccine, you must first complete an online registration form. Also, you MUST complete a parental consent form and send it to school with your child on or before Thursday. No children will be vaccinated without explicit, written consent by a parent or guardian.
Links to the registration and consent form are located above. We will also send consent forms home with students tomorrow. The clinic will return on June 10th to administer the second vaccine dose.
As more students and individuals are vaccinated, the easier and safer school operations will be for the remainder of the year and for reopening next fall. If vaccinated, students who are exposed to a COVID positive individual will not be named as a close contact and not be required to quarantine unless they show COVID symptoms - this allows students to continue learning in-person and participating in extracurricular activities.
Thank you so much for continuing to partner with us as we navigate through the remainder of this challenging school year and work toward a return to normalcy.
