Pittsburgh Public Colleges companions with Large Eagle to vaccinate college students ages 16 and older – WPXI

PITTSBURGH – Right now there is an urge to get younger people vaccinated.

A special vaccination clinic for public school students in Pittsburgh was held at Heinz Field on Wednesday. Giant Eagle expects about 80 students to receive the vaccine by the end of the clinic on Wednesday.

Students said they look forward to hanging out with friends again once they are fully vaccinated.

“I know we’re all ready to go back to normal and not have to deal with masks anymore,” said 10th grade student Mia Taylor.

On Wednesday, the children were required to bring a signed permit form, ID, and an insurance card, if they had one, to receive the vaccine.

Parents, legal guardians and authorized siblings could also be vaccinated at an appointment.

The clinic was also open to the general public.

Other school districts have their own vaccination clinics. The Hampton Township school districts are partnering with Rite Aid to host a Pfizer Vaccination Clinic in the high school cafeteria on May 15. The follow-up examination will take place on June 15th.

In addition, the North Hills School District will partner with Giant Eagle to host a Pfizer vaccination clinic at its high school. These first doses will be given on May 11th.

Giant Eagle has administered more than 500,000 vaccines in its pharmacy.
