On Thursday, July 8th, First Lady Jill Biden will tour a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Beach High School in Savannah to show her support for local efforts and encourage community residents to get vaccinated.
The mobile clinic at Beach High School, 3001 Hopkins Street, will be held from 2-4:30 p.m. Anyone age 12 and older who has not yet been vaccinated is encouraged to make an appointment at chdcovidvax.org. Walk-ins will be allowed, but appointments are preferred. There is no cost for vaccination, and Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be offered.
“SCCPSS is honored to host this event at Beach High School, one of the very few schools in the nation to have its own Community Health Screening Clinic," said Dr. Ann Levett, Superintendent of Savannah Chatham County Public Schools. "As one of the largest employers in the area, our commitment to providing vaccination opportunities for our staff was an early strategic priority for the school district. We proudly support the continued efforts to vaccinate the community at large and appreciate Dr. Biden's commitment to educating every citizen in the fight against COVID-19."
The First Lady will be joined by Senator Raphael Warnock and Savannah Mayor Van Johnson for the tour and to deliver remarks at Beach High School. The visit is part of the White House Administration's nation-wide effort to increase education and outreach about COVID-19 vaccination, and to reach the millions of Americans who still need protection against the virus.
SCCPSS is no stranger to vaccination efforts offering six vaccination clinics for employees during the recent school year at various school and district sites. The District is now planning for the start of the new school year offering in-person learning 5-days a week beginning August 4, 2021.
