Make sure your kid is fully vaccinated ahead of fall school activities

June 29, 2021 – FYI, News

School activities with the Juneau School District are starting back up in the beginning of August. The first day for swimming, diving, and volleyball practice is August 4. COVID-19 is still present in our community, so protect your child against the virus during fall activities by getting them vaccinated.

The Juneau School District requires that students be either fully vaccinated or participate in weekly COVID-19 testing at school in order to participate in school activities. It takes a minimum of five weeks from when you get your first dose of the Pfizer vaccine to be considered fully vaccinated, which is defined as two weeks after you get the second dose. Don’t worry—there’s still time!

Pfizer is authorized for ages 12 and up, and has been proven safe and highly effective. Sign up for one of these Pfizer vaccine opportunities this week:

  • Thursday, July 1 at Juneau Public Health Center (3412 Glacier Hwy) 9 am to 4 pm
  • Juneau Urgent & Family Care, Juneau airport (walk-in available), or Genoa Healthcare

Go to juneau.org/vaccine or call 586-6000 for more information or to sign up.
