Round Two: Pfizer Vaccination clinic July 2, 2021

The PORTA School District, in cooperation with the Illinois National Guard, Menard and Sangamon County Health Departments, will be offering the second round of a Covid-19 vaccine clinic at our High School campus on July 2, 2021. There is no cost for the vaccine.
Pfizer will be the vaccine utilized at the July 2nd clinic, which will allow ages 12 and up to participate.  This is a follow up clinic to a June 11, 2021 clinic and is scheduled at the same location and during the same time schedule. While this clinic is designed for follow-up vaccinations we will have limited availability for initial vaccinations as well.  
Appointments will be from 9:00 to 11:00 AM.
To Qualify for This clinic you must be 12 years of age or older and a legal guardian must be present during the vaccination for students 17 and under.
PLEASE READ:
If you are insured, please bring proof of insurance. The health Department will bill an administrative fee to cover some of the costs for the services they offer at the vaccine site. However, insurance is not required to receive the vaccine.
If possible, wear a short sleeved shirt to ensure vaccine is easily administered.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
You need to wait at least 14 days from your last vaccination (i.e. flu vaccine) to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. This means you are not eligible until day 15 after your last vaccination.
Before you schedule your second dose, ensure you have waited the appropriate amount of time (see your blue card). If appointment times are unavailable, please wait until additional time slots become available. If you come too early, you CANNOT get your second dose.
