            1. The vaccine for children 12 and older has been authorized with the expansion of the FDA Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer vaccine to include ages 12-15, Mat-Su Public Health Nurses will be working with MSBSD School Nurses to provide COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

            Things to consider about vaccinating for Covid-19:


            • Student won't be quarantined if identified as a close contact in school.
            • Student won't miss out on sports or after school activities due to quarantine.
            • Student will have minimal risk of contracting the virus at school.
            • Student will be less likely to spread the virus to family members.
            • Greater herd immunity in the community.
            • The more vaccinated, the sooner mitigation strategies can be lifted or reduced.
