Published

Now that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has officially approved the COVID-19 vaccine for five to 11-year-olds, Charleston County School District (CCSD) will provide the vaccine through partnerships with local medical organizations. 

CCSD has set up 10 regional afterschool clinics by Constituent District that will administer the two-shot Pfizer vaccine to students, with signed permission and approval from their parent or legal guardian, over the course of the next few months.

“We have been planning to offer the vaccines to this age group for quite some time,” said CCSD’s Director of Nursing Services, Ellen Nitz. “We are thankful for our medical partners for making this happen, and look forward to taking another major step in creating the safest possible learning environment for all of our students and staff during this pandemic.”

This program is only for CCSD students.

The entire schedule for the district’s COVID-19 vaccine sites (for 5 to 11- year-olds) is available on the CCSD website.

For more information, you can contact CCSD’s Division of Strategy and Communication at (843) 937-6303.
