Beginning Wednesday, staff from Dayton Children’s Hospital will travel to Montgomery County high schools to give the COVID-19 vaccine to students and their families.
“In order to stop the spread of this virus, we all need to do our part. That means continuing to wear a mask and maintain social distance in public, and getting the vaccine if you are eligible,” said Adam Mezoff, MD, chief medical officer and vice president at Dayton Children’s. “We are pleased to partner with Montgomery County Schools to provide the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to students 16 and older, to help put an end to the pandemic.”
Students who want to receive the vaccine will need to have a signed consent form from a parent or guardian to get the shot.

- Dayton Public Schools (Belmont)
