GIPS partners with CDHD, Heartland Health to host 4 COVID-19 vaccine clinics for GIPS families

Grand Island Public Schools has teamed up with local health experts to provide COVID-19 vaccination clinics for community members at GIPS campuses. 

In conjunction with the Central District Health Department and Heartland Health Center, GIPS will provide four summer clinics, with free lunches and T-shirts offered to the first 100 participants at each clinic. Masks are required for those attending.

Students and adults ages 12 and up can receive the vaccine from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the following dates and locations:

  • June 12, Lincoln Elementary School, 805 Beal Street
  • June 26, Walnut Middle School, 1600 N. Custer Ave.
  • July 10, Lincoln Elementary School, 805 Beal Street
  • July 24, Walnut Middle School, 1600 N. Custer Ave.

“We are excited to provide these vaccination opportunities for our community. It takes all of us to stop the spread of COVID-19 and to stamp out the pandemic for good,” said GIPS Superintendent Dr. Tawana Grover.

Anyone under the age of 19 interested in being vaccinated will require a parent or guardian to attend.

“Adults have done a great job of getting vaccinated in order to help get us back to ‘normal’, and now we need our young people to join in that effort,” said Dr. Daniel Leonard, pediatrician at the Children and Adolescent Clinic. 

“I encourage our youth and parents to talk about the vaccine, and when in doubt, call your doctor. We are more than happy to sit with you and talk about the vaccine and what to expect, with the biggest expectation of getting your life back to normal,” Dr. Leonard said.

GIPS thanks the Grand Island community for its support as it attempts to provide the safest environment for its students, staff and community.
