Day 2 of vaccinations at Broward schools set to begin


Wednesday is the second day students 16 and older are eligible to get vaccinated at Broward County high schools.

The vaccine distribution continued at six high schools on Wednesday.

Florida Department of Health personnel are distributing the Pfizer vaccine with no appointments needed.

The distribution will take place each day from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The vaccine is 100% voluntary to those who want it.

Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent to receive the vaccine.

A father dropping his son off at Pompano Beach High School said he was considering taking advantage of the opportunity.

“We’re discussing that right now,” said parent Frank Fimiano. “I think it’s a great opportunity for everyone, absolutely.”

The vaccine is also being offered to school staff, faculty and parents of students at each school.

The vaccines will be administered in school gyms or cafeterias.

They’ll have the opportunity to get the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and in exactly three weeks the health department will return to administer the second dose at the same site,” said Broward Schools Chief Portfolio Services Officer John Sullivan.

Miami-Dade Public Schools is hoping to start administering vaccines at some schools by next week.

“These are third-party administration, through the county, will be on-site at the school, may not necessarily be inside the school, maybe on a mobile unit but within the school grounds,” said M-DCPS Superintendent Alberto Carvalho.
