On Monday, May 10, 2021, the FDA approved the authorization of the Pfizer Vaccine for students aged 12-15, now allowing all individuals 12 and up to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine if they wish. The CDC formally approved the Pfizer Vaccine for 12 and up today as expected. This will begin to move us further towards our school reopening efforts for next year, as well as allow more communities to reach that 80% mark for further reopening of our region. Teams from NSHC will be put together Thursday, May 13 and be ready to begin administering shots on Friday, May 14, 2021. As stated before, I have approved teams from NSHC to come into the schools and provide shots as necessary. Attached are links to the Pfizer Vaccination Consent Form for parents and the EUA referenced on the form. If you would like for your child to receive the vaccination at the school, please complete this form and return it to your school office by Friday, May 14, 2021. The Bering Strait School District highly recommends all eligible students and community members get the vaccine to assist in our efforts of keeping all our students, staff, and communities safe.

Hello parents of students 12-15. We sent home a letter about the COVID vaccine for your students today. Here is further information from Dr. Bolen: "NSHC is expecting the Pfizer vaccination to be approved here in the next week or so for individuals aged 12-15. Once approved by the FDA, BSSD will offer it to students and families right away. This will assist us in a more normal opening next year. This is not mandatory for families, but highly recommended. If they have any questions, they should reach out to NSHC or the clinic."
Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Take a moment to thank your child's teacher for all their hard work and dedication. Go Eagles!
