Students of Glasgow Middle and High Schools offered the Pfizer vaccine

GLASGOW Ky.-An area hospital is partnering with a local school district to give students the chance at getting vaccinated during their school day.

TJ Regional Health will be providing the Pfizer vaccine to students of Glasgow Middle and High Schools. Permission forms went home with students Friday. For those wanting the shot, these forms must be returned by Wednesday September 22. The shots will be administered at the schools Friday September 24.

In addition to the form, students wanting to participate will need to present a copy of their insurance card. On Thursday September 23, parents and guardians of students who returned a form will be contacted to verify consent and to have questions answered if they have them.

Glasgow High School principal Amy Allen says she’s thankful to TJ Regional Health for their partnership with the school, and for giving students the chance to take advantage of this resource.

“Our DPP Dr. Chad Muhlenkamp and our superintendent Mr. Keith Hale reached out and just asked if that was an option for them to come into the schools to provide vaccinations for our Scotties who chose to do so. It was a really quick turnaround, so we appreciate their efficiency in doing that,” Allen said.
