COVID19 Vaccine questions:

With the age of the COVID being available for younger children, I am getting questions if a student can get COVID from the vaccine. The answer is NO, you cannot get COVID from the vaccine. The vaccine does not contain live SARS COV2 virus. The Pfizer vaccine for children is an mRNA vaccine.

 

 However, a person that is vaccinated can still get COVID (breakthrough infections).  The CDC reports the following:

  • Vaccine breakthrough infections are expected. COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing most infections. However, like other vaccines, they are not 100% effective.
  • Fully vaccinated people with a vaccine breakthrough infection are less likely to develop serious illness than those who are unvaccinated and get COVID-19.
  • Even when fully vaccinated people develop symptoms, they tend to be less severe symptoms than in unvaccinated people. This means they are much less likely to be hospitalized or die than people who are not vaccinated.
  • People who get vaccine breakthrough infections can be contagious.

 

Important Reminders...

 

Prescription medication to be given at school must have a written dr. order and brought to campus by an adult in the original pharmacy bottle.

 

Please do not send your student to school if they have a pending covid19 test.

 

Please do not send your student to school if a household member tested positive for covid19. Please keep your child home and contact the front office or myself.
