Vaccine Approved for 5-11 Year-Olds - Resources and How-to Upload Vaccine Card to Magnus

Headwaters School
On Tuesday, the CDC approved the pediatric Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5-11 after FDA authorization last week. Find a vaccine your child by visiting Vaccines.gov and be sure to reach out to your child’s healthcare provider with any questions. Headwaters strongly recommends the vaccine for all eligible people!
Find out more about how to find an APH vaccine clinic starting next week and more resources below. We also have directions on how to update your Magnus records, too. Please note, for the foreseeable future, we will continue to ask for the Magnus COVID-19 Screening to be completed each morning for all students.  

Vaccine Clinics
The Thinkery (1830 Simond Ave, Austin, Texas 78723) is partnering with Austin Public Health to host a kids’ COVID-19 vaccine clinic. The clinic will be offering FREE COVID-19 vaccines for children ages 5+ and boosters for eligible adults. The clinic is happening on Sunday, November 21, from 1 pm-5 pm. There is no appointment, I.D., citizenship, or medical insurance needed! Each child who gets a shot will also receive a free Admit One pass for them (+1 adult) to come back and explore the Thinkery. Call 3-1-1 or 512-974-2000 with any questions.
 
Austin Public Health is also offering walk-up clinics (meaning no appointment necessary) for children ages 5-11 at the Delco Activity Center, Old Sims Elementary, and Pflugerville Library.
