As you may know, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has opened the administration of vaccines to every Pennsylvania resident, ages 16 years of age or older.
Titusville Area School District and Titusville Hospital are partnering in order to provide vaccinations to any Titusville High School student age 16 and up who would like to have the vaccine. Titusville Hospital will be at Titusville High School on Monday, April 26, 2021 to administer the Pfizer COVID vaccine to students.
Please note that COVID vaccinations are not required by the state or school district for students. We are providing this information to you as parents as an opportunity to have your child age 16 or older vaccinated locally and conveniently.
Also, please note that any student who does receive the COVID vaccination and is two weeks past their second shot will not need to quarantine, in the event the student is deemed a close contact at school.
Parents can request their child receive the vaccine at this clinic by completing a short form indicating your interest and completing the forms attached to the email. Forms must be returned to school with your child by Tuesday, April 20. There is no extension to this deadline. If the consent forms are not received by Tuesday, your child cannot receive the vaccine.
Parents are not required to be present at the time of the vaccination on Monday, April 26. Building online and Rockets Online Campus students who are 16 years or older, can also participate in this clinic.
If you have questions, please contact our school nurse, Marci Kelly at 814-827-2715, ext. 1435.
