Proctor High School Pop-Up Vaccine Clinic Happens May 12 + 13
The efforts to get as many people vaccinated for COVID-19 are in full swing and the current attention is now on school-age children as CDC guidelines continue to open up. That's the push behind the two-day pop-up COVID-vaccination clinic being arranged by St. Luke's and scheduled to happen at the Proctor High School.
The clinic will happen Wednesday, May 12 and Thursday, May 13 - between the hours of 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM. The vaccination clinic will be open to anyone 16 years of age and older and that includes the general public (i.e. students, public, community members, etc.). In other words - participating people getting their vaccine don't necessarily need to be current students of the Proctor schools; they just need to meet the age requirement as set forth.
Participants must be at least 16 years of age. Patients who are under the age of 18 are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian or bring along a signed Vaccine Form. Forms and EUA are available on St. Luke's website at slhduluth.com/COVIDVaccine.
At this specific COVID-19 Vaccine pop-up clinic, administrators will be using the Pfizer vaccine. While pre-arranged appointments are encouraged, walk-ups will also be accepted. To make a scheduled time, call 218-249-4200.
The vaccine clinic will be located at the Proctor High School: Door 5 - 131 North 9th Avenue.
School and government officials have shared that vaccinating as many young people as they can is one of the keys to making sure that spring and summer (and potentially this upcoming fall) activities look as normal as can be.
