NYC Vaccine For All: Safe, Free, easy

We are encouraging ALL of our students to get vaccinated!

Adolescents ages 12 through 18 years can now receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at any of the city’s 11 public hospitals. Appointments are suggested and can be made online or by phone. Walk-ins are also welcome. Parents or guardians are required to fill out 2 consent forms. For more information go to NYC Health & Hospitals.

Middle and High Schools: In the event there is a positive case in a classroom, students who are:

    • At least 12 years old, vaccinated, and not showing symptoms will continue to attend school in-person. Out of an abundance of caution, these students are encouraged to take a COVID-19 test 3 to 5 days after exposure.

    • At least 12 years old, vaccinated, and showing symptoms will be directed to quarantine for 10 calendar days. These students will have access to remote learning while quarantining.

    • Unvaccinated will be directed to quarantine for 10 calendar days. These students will continue learning remotely. On day 5 of their quarantine, students may take a COVID-19 test, and with a negative result, return to attending school in-person after day 7.

Please view our Policies and Forms page and complete all necessary forms! Thank you!
