High School Vaccination Clinics

In addition to mandatory COVID testing for athletes, all Savannah-Chatham public high schools also will be offering SCCPSS vaccination clinics this fall. Students will be able to receive two shots on these vaccination days. These days will be in October and November 2021, depending on the school.

SCCPSS has teamed up with St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System, the Coastal Georgia Department of Health, Hospice of Savannah, Savannah Fire Department, and Chatham Emergency Services to host vaccine clinics at area high schools for staff and students 12 years of age or older.

Schools have been divided into clusters with neighboring elementary and middle schools assigned to a high school. First shots, second shots and Pfizer boosters will be offered to those who meet the criteria. All sites will offer vaccinations from 1:30 – 4:30 on the specified dates.

Appointments are not required but participants will be asked to register prior to vaccination clinic date. Parental consent is required for anyone under the age of 18. Register online here.
