The Jaffrey-Rindge School District has the opportunity to provide a COVID-19 vaccination clinic for students as young as 12 years old.

The district was approached by the Greater Monadnock Public Health Network about the possibility of creating an in-school vaccination clinic for students at some point in the future.

COVID-19 vaccines are currently only available to those ages 16 and older, but Pfizer has filed an Emergency Use Authorization to allow for anyone 12 and older to receive their COVID-19 vaccine. A decision on the Emergency Use Authorization is expected at some point this month.

While awaiting news on this potential shift in availability, the Greater Monadnock Public Health Network has requested the Jaffrey-Rindge Cooperative School district to determine interest among district families as to how many students are interested in accessing the vaccine.

If the district holds a clinic, both shots will be scheduled and administered at the school.

Families were asked to fill out an interest survey to determine how many students were interested in taking the vaccine if it were available, which will be used by the Greater Monadnock Public Health Network to determine interest and allocate vaccinations.

More information will be available on the Jaffrey-Rindge Cooperative website as it becomes available.
