GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - More than 80 Grand Island Senior High School students received their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

A vaccination clinic was held Friday morning in the west gym of GISH.

The voluntary opportunity was open to seniors and students who were at least 18 years old. Students under the age of 19 had to have parental consent.

“This is a great day for Grand Island Public Schools and for our community,” said GIPS Superintendent Dr. Tawana Grover. “I am proud of our students for stepping up to meet this moment. They took steps today to ensure our community is as safe as it can be.”

With the help of the Central District Health Department, more vaccination clinics will be held for GIPS students moving forward.
