MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Now that the Centers for Disease Control has authorized the Pfizer vaccine for ages 12 and up, Miami-Dade and Miami-Dade public schools want to get more shots in arms.

“When we vaccinate teachers, school staff, families, and young people, our schools can get back to normal and we can all get back to doing the things we love, with the people we love,” said Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.

The county is partnering with the school district to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to eligible students, their family and staff at select schools.

“Making the vaccine available at several of our schools, to all those who are eligible, has been a priority of this School Board that will help protect our entire community,” said Superintendent of Schools Alberto M. Carvalho.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive the vaccine. You can download a COVID-19 screening and consent form by clicking here.
