MADISON, CT — Since there was a "very high turnout" at the first pediatric COVID-19 vaccination clinic last Friday, new protocols are in place for tomorrow's clinic, Madison Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Craig Cooke said in a message to families.

Partnering with Griffin Health, Madison schools are holding two kids clinics, the first was held last Friday. The second is set for this Friday, Nov. 19 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Town Campus Gym, 6 Campus Drive.

The second shot for last week's clinic will be Friday Dec. 3 at the Senior Center, 29 Bradley Road from 2-6 p.m.

The second shot for those being vaccinated Friday Nov. 19 will be Dec. 10, also at the Senior Center from 2-6 p.m.

Cooke said in a message to families that the vaccine clinic, for Madison students ages 5-11, "had a very high turnout (over 300 people) so we are implementing a few additional protocols for this upcoming clinic."

Griffin Health, the organization running the clinic, does not provide specific appointments, so parents should sign up here for the "time window you plan to bring your student(s) to be vaccinated." Cooke said, "Once a time window is full, it will be removed as an option. This will allow us to hopefully avoid congestion at the clinic and provide us with an estimate of how many vaccines will be needed."

Families are asked to also print and fill out the pre-screening forms for your student(s) off our website. Please keep in mind that the people administering the vaccinations may not move as quickly from patient to patient as they would at adult clinics. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation."
