EMSB to help coordinate COVID-19 vaccination appointments for eligible students
Montreal, May 31, 2021- The English Montreal School Board is working with local CIUSSS offices to coordinate COVID-19 vaccination appointments for students aged 12 to 17 beginning in mid-June.
Some school buildings have been identified as vaccination centers for students between 9 am and 4 pm weekdays. Any staff who have yet to receive their first dose will be able to do so as well. Some EMSB facilities will also be open to the public after regular school hours, between 4 pm and 7 pm. In these cases, students aged 12 and 13 who had no consent forms or 12 year olds from nearby elementary schools can come as long as they are accompanied by a parent.
Information sessions are being organized by CIUSSS offices.
All COVID-19 safety protocols will be adhered to.
