GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Two COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be held this week at Grand Island Senior High.

Grand Island Public Schools has coordinated with the Central District Health Department to provide these vaccination opportunities for students and families in the district.

“We are not out of the woods yet,” said GIPS Superintendent Dr. Tawana Grover. “We want our families to know of these opportunities and that GIPS will do everything it can to provide them.”

The clinics will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 15, and from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. on Friday, April 16 in the school’s west gym.

All students aged 16 and older can receive the vaccine. Students under 19 require parental consent.

Those interested should park in the West parking lot and enter through the main west doors (Door 1). Interpreters will be available to assist with check-in.

Those who are interested should register on vaccinate.ne.gov.

GIPS is still working with CDHD to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to staff. At the time of this writing, more than 99% of all GIPS staff who requested the vaccine have at least received the first dose.
