Beginning next week, Anne Arundel Department of Health and Anne Arundel County Public Schools and are teaming up to offer a round of COVID-19 Pfizer vaccination clinics for children ages 5 to 11 at four elementary schools.
The March clinics, which will run from 5 to 7:30 p.m., are first-dose clinics. Children who previously received first dose have already been provided information for second-dose clinics.
Sites and dates for the third round of clinics are as follows:
|Tuesday, March 1, 2022||Hillsmere Elementary School
3052 Arundel on the Bay Road, Annapolis
|Wednesday, March 2, 2022||Jessup Elementary School

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave formal approval to administer the vaccines in November. Children ages 5 to 11 will require two shots three weeks apart to be fully vaccinated. Second doses will be administered at the same schools as first doses, and families of children who receive first doses will receive reminders from the Department of Health to schedule the second doses.
All children must be accompanied by an adult at the vaccine site. Everyone at all clinics must be masked at all times while they are in the clinic.

Registration links for all school-based clinics can be found at www.aacps.org/covidvaccines. To provide equitable access for all interested families, links for clinics will be made public at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 23, 2022.
