District helps students, families get vaccinated







Students 16 and older can now be vaccinated against COVID-19, and CMSD will make it easier for them.

The District is working with state agencies, the Cleveland Department of Public Health, University Hospitals and others to offer three vaccination opportunities for students and their family members:

  • Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center will welcome high school students and family members on Wednesday, May 5, Saturday, May 8 and Sunday, May 9. CMSD students and family members will be able to ride a school bus to the clinic. State and Federal agencies are hosting. Hours will vary for pickup and drop off.
  • The City of Cleveland and Cleveland Department of Public Health will vaccinate students at the International Newcomers Academy on Thursday, May 6, and the Lincoln-West Campus on Friday, May 7. The clinics, which will operate from 11 a.m. to 6, are open to the public, but CMSD students and family members will receive priority for the first two hours. Assistance will be available for English learners.
  • University Hospitals will host a vaccination clinic for students from Collinwood, Ginn Academy and Glenville high schools and family members from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12. CMSD Shuttle service is available from the schools.

All of the clinics will administer the Pfizer vaccine. (Learn about the vaccine.)

Participants will schedule an appointment for a second dose as part of the first session visit. The district will provide transportation for second doses.

All high schools will provide registration information and consent forms.
