COVID-19 Vaccination Opportunity for Ages 12+5/14/2021
This week, the Oregon Health Authority announced the approval of Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccination for individuals age 12 and older. The Oregon Convention Center is now open for FREE vaccinations: you can walk in without an appointment or you can schedule an appointment on the PPS Student & Family Vaccination website. Our next PPS day at the Convention Center will be Wednesday, May 19.
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; we will share the form in all PPS-supported languages with families on Monday.
Transportation and translation support is available for Wednesday. A shuttle (available for students and family members) will leave Alliance @ Meek, Franklin, Ida B. Wells, McDaniel @ Marshall, and Roosevelt, take families to the Convention Center, and return them back to the school site. Shuttle times will be posted on our website. A PPS tent will be at the front of the Convention Center to assist students and get them oriented.
More information to come on Monday. We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to get vaccinated and we wish you a safe and peaceful weekend.
