DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — According to school officials, Danville Public Schools has been offered an opportunity to administer the Pfizer vaccine students age 12 and older through Sovah Health.

The school district released the following statement about the vaccination offer on Facebook on Wednesday, May 12:

To All Students Age 12 and Older:

Danville Public Schools have been offered, through SOVAH, a chance to get students 12 and older vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine. We are sending you this link to see if you would like the COVID-19 vaccine, with the permission of your custodial parent. Please go to the Google form survey and complete it. Also, if you are interested in obtaining the vaccination, your custodial parent will need to complete the consent form which you may download and print from the link at the top bottom of the survey. It is a fillable form which means you can type in the information, have your parent docusign it, and send it back via email to me at rtownes@mail.dps.k12.va.us. If you print the form and get a signature, the completed form can be turned in to your school nurse. Your parents and you will be contacted at a later date when the time and date is set, provided there is sufficient interest. Feel free to contact your school nurse if you have questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Renita L. Townes, RN
