CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – R.B. Stall High School and the Medical University of South Carolina will be partnering to host a vaccine clinic to administer first dose vaccine shots to students.
The clinic will be done at the school in North Charleston starting at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday for all students 16-years-old and older who want the vaccine. Students must make an appointment if they would like to participate.
The event is happening in order to give doses to the eight largest high schools in the district.
MUSC pharmacists and doctors will be on stand by to help school nurses administer the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
Parental consent is required even though health officials say state laws do not require it. Health officials say Pfizer is working to expand the vaccine to children 12 and up in the future.
MUSC and CCSD have worked closely since the beginning of the pandemic to keep students, staff and faculty safe.
As for smaller high schools, officials say other healthcare organizations will handle the rest of the district’s schools.
