WCSD Partners with Washoe County Health District

To Provide COVID-19 Vaccines to Students, Community


Reno, NV (October 12, 2021) – The Washoe County School District (WCSD) is partnering with the Washoe County Health District to provide free COVID-19 vaccines at five school sites for students and members of the community. Anyone 12 years and older is eligible to receive both doses of the Pfizer vaccines at these clinics.

Students under 18 years of age who have written permission from their parent or guardian will have an opportunity to receive both doses of the Pfizer vaccine—three weeks apart— during school hours. Parents and guardians of children with a signed permission slip will also receive a phone call to verify their consent before vaccines are administered.

In addition to vaccine clinics during school hours for students, members of the community may receive vaccines at the school sites later in the day, after students have been dismissed from classes. At the community clinics, the Health District is offering all three types of available vaccines: Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer, along with the Pfizer booster shot. Anyone eligible to receive a vaccine is welcome regardless of immigration status.

Members of the community who receive the Pfizer vaccine may receive the second vaccine at a clinic at the school three weeks later. Those who receive the Moderna vaccine may receive their second vaccine four weeks later from local pharmacies or from the Health District. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine does not require a second shot.

For more information about the clinics at WCSD schools, please visit www.washoeschools.net/covid19.
