We made tremendous progress in the past few months, but we still have work to do to ensure that every student has the opportunity and confidence to return to the classroom, this fall and start making up for lost instructional and extracurricular time this summer as both vaccination and testing are critical factors in the Administration’s goal to safely reopen all the academic activities, I urge to help students age 15 and up, their families and all school staff with getting vaccinated.
Accelerating vaccination is a core component of our national strategy to defeat the virus and a key strategy in alignment with Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance as a way to increase safety and reduce risk of transmission.
SALUTARY ADVISE TO THE STUDENTS POST –VACCINE
The minor symptoms that may be seen after vaccination in adolescents can be fever, headache, pain at the sight of injection, fatigue, etc.
