Evanston 16- and 17-year-olds will be able to obtain COVID-19 vaccinations next week with appointments set aside for them.
In a memo on the Evanston Township High School website, Superintendent Eric Witherspoon says the City of Evanston is partnering with Amita St. Francis Hospital to “offer COVID vaccinations specifically to 16- and 17-year-olds in our community.”
Those interested must sign up by this Thursday, April 29, at 10 a.m. Details about the registration process are available on the ETHS website.
A parent or guardian must accompany their minor child to the clinic at St. Francis Hospital for the vaccine to be administered.
Students who miss school to get a shot will be given an excused absence if they follow the steps outlined on the website.
