  • May 24 Update:  Reminder About COVID-19 Vaccination Opportunities for Students Age 12 and Up

    EspañolTiếng Việt中文SoomaaliРусский

    Dear PPS Families,

    As we have shared with you previously, the Oregon Health Authority recently announced the approval of Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccination for individuals age 12 and up. We are continuing to provide students and their families with vaccination support at the Oregon Convention Center (OCC).

    Please visit the PPS Student & Family Vaccination website for information about our supported Wednesday vaccination opportunities and how you can request transportation to and from the OCC. This is the last week to access a first vaccine dose at the OCC. Second doses will be available until they close their doors on June 19.

    Students age 15+ can sign up or walk up to the OCC to receive a vaccine. Students ages 12-14 must be accompanied by either a parent, a guardian, or someone designated by the parent. If accompanied by an adult other than a parent, a student must have a parent-signed consent form. Below is the consent form in all PPS-supported languages:

    And just a reminder, vaccinations at the OCC and other locations are easy to access throughout the week. You can visit https://getvaccinated.oregon.gov/#/locator to search for vaccination opportunities in your neighborhood or check Multnomah County’s list of vaccination sites.

    Thank you.
