LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- JCPS continues to administer COVID shots to students at their schools, with six schools, including Waggener High, taking part in Monday's clinics.
The district has been offering COVID testing clinics for months, and is now offering actual shots for students who have signed permission slips from parents.
"Parents could register their minors online and then there was both a hard copy option or an on-line consent option," said Waggener principal Sarah Hitchings. "I have minors behind me and they are ready to go, and parents don't have to take off work or drive them to the nearest site."
JCPS will start administering vaccines to kids ages 5 and up this Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 13 and Nov. 14). JCPS families and staff interested in the district’s vaccination drive can register here with the enrollment code KY85104; a limited number of walk-in appointments will be available.
