We have learned that there will be a vaccination clinic held this week on June 16th at the Miramichi Agricultural Exhibition Building, and we have been approved to send any students 12+ years who have yet to receive their first dose.
BHS will be busing students to and from the clinic for those wanting to get the vaccine. Staff supervision will be provided. Students who are 12-15 years of age will require consent from a parent or guardian.
Anyone receiving the vaccine must give consent using the form found under the NEWS tab of the school webpage. Students aged 12-15 must have their parent or guardian fill out and sign the consent form.
It is very important that signed consent forms are returned with the student no later than Tuesday, June 15th.
IMPORTANT- Please take your Medicare card with you.
Information on the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, as well as information on after-care, is included.
All New Brunswickers aged 12 and older are now eligible to receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
People under 18 should be registered for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The vaccine is approved for use in people who have reached their 12th birthday and is the only vaccine currently approved for those under the age of 18.
You can register if: you are aged 16 or older, or you are the parent or guardian of a child between 12-15 years old.
Please be patient. Appointment availability may vary, with more appointments available next week or the week after.
