Where can students age 12+ get the COVID-19 Vaccine?

The CDC recommends everyone 12 years of age and older get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is critical to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Getting a COVID-19 vaccination can help protect your child from getting COVID-19. Early information shows that the vaccines may help keep people from spreading COVID-19 to others. They can also help keep your child from getting seriously sick even if they do get COVID-19. Help protect your whole family by getting yourself and your children 12 years and older vaccinated against COVID-19.

A variety of locations are offering the Pfizer vaccine. Those under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present to receive the vaccine.

  • The Pfizer vaccine is available at the Dome at America’s Center. Make an appointment through the Missouri Vaccine Navigator or call 877-435-8411.

Please let us know if your child receives the vaccine
If your child receives the vaccine, please notify your school nurse with either a copy of their CDC vaccine card or medical documentation stating when the student received their vaccines. Our schools are following the CDC guidelines when it comes to determining if a student needs to remain off campus following an exposure. In most instances, a fully vaccinated student will not be asked to remain off campus following close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19.

What should I do if my child(ren) has failed the morning routine self-check screener?

Students with symptoms should not attend school and parents should consult their healthcare provider and follow CDC considerations regarding their return to school. For students who are diagnosed with COVID-19, either by a laboratory test or based on their symptoms, return to school is permissible when the student is at least 10 days from symptom onset, has had three days with no fever, and has improving symptoms. Return to school for children with an alternate diagnosis is at the discretion of their healthcare provider and/or the school nurse. Children with a known close contact with COVID-19 (or an adult with symptoms compatible with COVID-19) should stay home for 14 days from their last contact and until return to school is approved by the local health department in accordance with the CDC guidance. Please notify the school nurse of your child(ren)'s symptoms.
