In partnership with the Stokes County Health Department, Stokes County Schools would like to see how many parents are interested in having their children receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Please fill out the attached survey.
While Stokes County Schools does not require students to receive a vaccine, and the decision should be made by students, and their legal guardians, guidance from the CDC and state health experts, is that the vaccines approved for use in the United States are safe and effective in preventing the contraction and
spread of COVID-19.
One reason to get the vaccine is if a student has been fully vaccinated, they do not have to quarantine if they are exposed to someone with COVID-19 but do not have any symptoms, and it has been at least two weeks since they completed their vaccination series. This includes students, student-athletes, and other extra-curricular activities.
The Stokes County Health Department will have a Pfizer vaccine clinic for people 16 years old and older on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at the Stokes County Health Department in Danbury.
They will hold another Pfizer vaccine clinic for people 16 years old and older on Thursday, May 13, at the Southwest Service Center at 102 Hartgrove Road, King, NC 27021
Please watch the news as there is a possibility that the Pfizer vaccine MAY be approved for children 12 years old and older in the near future.
Please submit a new form for each of your children.
If you have any questions about the vaccination clinics, please contact the Stokes County Health Department at (336) 593-2400.
