18 DPS schools will offer the COVID-19 vaccine for kids

COVID-19 Vaccine

DENVER (KDVR) — Parents with kids at Denver Public Schools can now sign up their children to get the COVID-19 vaccine at one of 18 schools offering vaccination on Monday.

The move is part of a collaboration with Denver Health.  Vaccinations are by appointment only, according to the district.

A note from DPS Superintendent Dr. Alex Marrero reads, in part:

“As both an educator and the father of two young children, one who is now able to be vaccinated, I’m thrilled at the opportunity to create even safer conditions in all of our schools for our youngest learners. 

I hope that everyone in our community will take the time to listen to the medical experts who have consistently emphasized that the vaccine is our best and strongest weapon in bringing an end to the pandemic. Dr. Steven Federico, the lead pediatrician at Denver Health and our close partner on our health plan, gives a detailed and thorough overview of the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness in this week’s video.

Throughout the pandemic, the DPS community has come together in tremendous ways to put Students First and help ensure the safest and healthiest conditions possible in our classrooms. Thank you for that, and please talk with your healthcare provider and consider having your children vaccinated against COVID-19.”

In mid-November, seven Denver schools will put on vaccine clinics
