COVID Boosters for 12+

The CDC and Department of Public Health recently updated their quarantine and isolation guidance. This change affects many of our students as guidance now states that individuals not vaccinated, or those who are greater than 6 months out from completion of a 2-dose vaccine series without a booster does must be quarantined following an exposure.

The FDA has just approved COVID-19 booster doses for all children over 12. Please consider scheduling your child an appointment for a booster if they received their second vaccine dose prior to August 2021. Once we return in-person, those who are 6 months out from a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be required to quarantine after a close exposure unless they have received a booster.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
