Schenectady County announces student COVID vaccination PODs

Schenectady County

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Schenectady County will hold a series of Pfizer vaccination PODs at high school gymnasiums throughout the County for students and parents, and anyone else who is eligible. The Pfizer vaccine was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), recommended by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New York State for individuals 12 years of age or older.

These PODs are part of the County’s effort on increasing accessibility to COVID-19 vaccines
for all residents. School nurses will vaccinate students and Schenectady County Public Health
Services staff will administer vaccines to all other individuals. Appointments are available on the Schenectady County website.

Individuals must bring proof of age. For those younger than the age of 18, a parent or legal
guardian must provide consent for vaccination. A parent or legal guardian must provide verbal
consent either while accompanying the minor to the vaccination appointment, or by phone at the time of the vaccination appointment.

If the minor is 12-15 years old, they must arrive with a parent or guardian, or they need to bring another adult caregiver who has a signed designation from the parent or guardian and the parent/guardian must be available by phone.
