Fayette County Public Schools has partnered with Wildhealth and LFUCG to offer the COVID-19 vaccine at all six FCPS high schools on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
All Fayette County Public Schools students 16 years of age or older are eligible to be vaccinated, as are their families and FCPS employees. Students and employees who are fully vaccinated (two weeks past the second dose) may not need to quarantine, should they be exposed to COVID-19 in the future.
Vaccination sign-ups are available at: kyvax.wildhealth.com. The site includes a place for families to give consent for 16- and 17-year-olds to receive the vaccine. Those registering are encouraged to sign up for both first vaccine on April 27th and a second dose on May 18th.
Questions about the registration process should contact the Wildhealth Help Desk at 859-217-4679.
Those with transportation challenges are reminded that Federated Transportation Services of the Bluegrass is offering FREE rides to COVID-19 vaccine clinics for those in need. Rides can be scheduled by calling 888-848-0989.
This opportunity is open to ALL students (16 and older), their families, and staff in FCPS, regardless of school affiliation.
Teams from Wild Health will be onsite for half a day at Bryan Station, Frederick Douglass, Henry Clay, Lafayette, Paul Laurence Dunbar and Tates Creek high schools on Tuesday, April 27. Students attending special program schools may sign up for the vaccine at any of the six other high schools and receive an excused absence.
This clinic will offer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, which is administered as a shot in the arm as a series of two doses, three weeks apart. Studies show this vaccine is 95% effective at preventing COVID-19 illness. There is no cost to get the vaccine.
