NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Norfolk Public Schools (NPS) announced it would be offering the COVID-19 vaccine to students at select schools this week.

The clinics are for students in the newly eligible 5-11 year-old age group who already received the first dose of the vaccine.

As of December 7, the Virginia Department of Health coronavirus dashboard showed just under 25% of all children in the 5-11 age group in Virginia have received at least one dose of the approved COVID-19 vaccine.

Students will need to return the required consent forms and bring their COVID-19 vaccination card they received with the first dose.

Here is the vaccine clinic schedule for the week of December 6-10:
