CCSD 89 to host COVID-19 vaccine clinic for 5- to 11-year-olds on November 20
Community Consolidated School District 89 will host COVID-19 vaccination clinics for children who are 5 to 11 years old on November 20 and December 11.
Children 5 to 11 years old can receive the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine on Saturday, November 20, and the second dose on Saturday, December 11. Both clinics will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Park View Elementary School, 250 S. Park Boulevard, Glen Ellyn.
There is no cost for the vaccination.
The clinic is open to any 5- to 11-year-old child, not just CCSD 89 students. The clinic will only have pediatric doses. There will be no doses or boosters available for adults.

You must register for the clinic; walk-ins are not allowed. Families should only register for the November 20 clinic if they can also attend on December 11.
At the clinic
Children younger than 18 must have a parent with them at the time of vaccination. Guardians should fill out the consent form prior to arriving at the clinic. The consent form can be downloaded here: English Espanol
Families can park in the Park View parking lot and enter through the main doors at the front of the school.
The district needs volunteers to help staff the vaccination event. You can sign up to volunteer here: https://forms.gle/f73xQ1f7NrWZvbgy9
This optional clinic is being hosted by the district as a service to local families. At this time, there is not a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for children. However, in most cases, a non-symptomatic child who has been fully vaccinated would not have to quarantine out of school when they are a close contact.
The clinic is being run by Jewel-Osco/Albertsons, in coordination with CCSD 89 District Nurse Sandy Lawinger. The vaccines will be administered by Jewel-Osco staff members who have experience distributing vaccines (such as flu shots) to younger children.

Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccinations are not yet approved for children younger than 12. If those vaccines are approved for children younger than 12 prior to the November 20 clinic, those vaccines may also be offered at the clinic. A notice would be added to the district’s website if those become available.
Adult booster clinic on November 13
Separately, the district is also hosting a vaccination and booster clinic for anyone 12 years and older from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, November 13, at Glen Crest Middle School. More information about that clinic is available here: https://bit.ly/3FQxlqd
