Dear Students, Families and Staff,
Last week, during the District’s input and feedback session with students, many student representatives, who had surveyed and polled their peers, expressed that we share more information with them regarding vaccinations and provide easy access to vaccinations for those who are eligible (ages 16+ for Pfizer vaccine) and willing. Based on this feedback, we will be offering information to students who are 16 years old and up on where they can register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine for their age group locally and county wide. Elk Grove Unified encourages all who can and want to be vaccinated to get vaccinated. Early this spring, we collaborated with several local leaders and organizations to help our staff get vaccinated and now we are responding to the interests of students who would like to learn more about vaccinations.
Vaccination Locations and Making an Appointment
California Northstate University (CNSU) has Pfizer appointments available for Wednesday, 5/5 and Friday 5/7. If you would like to register for an appointment, please use the links below:

The link for Clinic Friday 5/7/2021 (clinic hours 4-6 pm):
Address to CNSU clinics: 9650 West Taron Drive, Elk Grove, CA, 95757
Sacramento County Information
Vaccine appointment availability has increased significantly recently. Eligibility is open to anyone 16 or older who lives or works in Sacramento County. As a reminder, only Pfizer vaccine is approved for 16 and 17 year olds. Those looking for Pfizer are advised to act while availability is good as we do not anticipate an increase in allocation when Pfizer becomes approved for 12 to 15 year olds, which could happen as early as May.
If you or anyone you know is interested in being vaccinated, we have information on available clinics posted on our vaccine registration webpage. Additional clinic information is available on MyTurn and VaccineFinder.
