Lehigh Valley Health Network is proud to partner with the Stroudsburg Area School District to provide a Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, from 4-7 p.m. at Stroudsburg Junior High School.
The school is located at 1901 Chipperfield Dr. and the clinic is open to anyone 12 years of age and older. The clinic will be held in the gymnasium and signs will be posted at the appropriate entrance. While pre-registration is required to guarantee a vaccine at the clinic, walk-ins are welcome as long as supplies are available.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is critical to help stop the pandemic. Getting you and your child vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss.
“We at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital are encouraging parents to get their child vaccinated for their safety, as well as the safety of their family,” says J. Nathan Hagstrom, MD, Chief of Pediatrics at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital. “The Pfizer vaccine has emergency use authorization for ages 12 and older and has been proven safe and effective. The clinical trial data submitted to the Food and Drug Administration demonstrated 100% effectiveness at preventing disease in this age group, which now represents nearly 20% of current COVID-19 infections.”
The Pfizer vaccine is a two-dose vaccine. The second vaccination will occur at the junior high school on June 23 from 4-7 p.m.
Children ages 12-17 must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian or an adult approved by the parent/guardian. We will require proof of identification and consent.
