SLPS students, families can get first COVID-19 shots at Vashon clinic

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Public School District and the Urban League of Greater Metropolitan St. Louis are hosting a first-dose vaccination clinic on Saturday for the district’s students and families. The clinic will be at Vashon High School, 3035 Cass Avenue, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Doors open at 8 a.m. 

There is no need to register for the clinic in advance. 

Partners at Visionary Vaccination & Health Services will provide first doses of the Pfizer vaccines to children ages 5-17; parents must be with the children to sign permission forms.

Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson will also be available to those 18 and up.

Officials from the city’s Department of Health will be at the clinic, giving $100 gift cards to city residents receiving their first dose of the vaccine. The cards will be available while supplies last, so getting to the event promptly may be a good idea. 

Light refreshments will be served.

The clinic at Vashon was added after SLPS got a large number of requests for vaccinations for children ages 5-11. Extra vaccine doses are being brought in, and the clinic workers will do their best to accommodate all who show up.

Staff is home to The NorthSider and The SouthSider weekly community newspapers. The SouthSider publishes 25,000 copies every Tuesday. The NorthSider publishes 25,000 copies every Thursday. They are distributed at over 600 locations across St. Louis.
