INFO: On-Site Vaccine Clinic
Posted on 05/23/2021

Greetings #TeamLCPS Parents and Guardians!

As you may know, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Blue Ridge Health District (BRHD) have released the Pfizer vaccine to be administered to children as young as 12 years old.  Currently, the BRHD collaborates with LCPS to use the metal gym behind Louisa County Middle School as a vaccine clinic for the community.  Please click here to view a video tour of the vaccine clinic at the LCMS metal gym.

If you are interested in having your child receive the Pfizer vaccine, please click here and complete the form in its entirety.

Children can also be vaccinated at other clinic sites or with their physician.  Please complete this form ONLY if you would like your child to receive a vaccine at the LCPS metal gym and would like school staff to assist you in scheduling an appointment.  A parent or designated adult must be present with any child younger than 18 years old when he/she is vaccinated.  All participants must have their own transportation.  

The dates of the student clinic are June 2 (first dose) AND June 23 (second dose).  Appointments will be scheduled from 2 P.M. to 8 P.M.  If your child is unavailable on those dates, you will have the opportunity to schedule an appointment through Dr. Alpern on an alternate date at the metal gym or at another BRHD clinic.

Getting the vaccine is VOLUNTARY, and neither LCPS nor the health department is authorized to give advice on who should or should not receive the vaccine. For additional information about the vaccine, both VDH and the Centers for Disease Control have more information on their websites.

Again, if your child would like to participate in the student vaccine clinic at the LCPS metal gym and you would like school staff to assist you in scheduling an appointment, please complete this survey.

If you have questions, please contact Dr. Carla Alpern, Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Personnel Services, at alpernca@lcps.k12.va.us or 540-894-5115 x7028.
