Lee Health partners with School Board to administer COVID-19 vaccinations to students
LEE COUNTY, Fla. – Lee Health and the School District of Lee County are collaborating to provide COVID-19 vaccination to the county’s pediatric population, they announced at a Tuesday night meeting.
Vaccinations are completely optional and are meant to serve as a convenience, the Lee County School Board said.
Lee Health will create a mobile vaccination site using a pediatric ambulance and a team of healthcare professionals, including one emergency medical technician, one customer service representative, one pharmacist (or one pharmacy technician) and two registered nurses to administer COVID-19 vaccinations, who will administer vaccinations per CDC guidelines.
Lee Health will provide all necessary equipment and supplies to operate the mobile COVID-19 vaccination site including but, not limited to: COVID-19 vaccinations, necessary forms and waivers, tables, chairs, and writing instruments.
The school board is providing the necessary space for the site, including a space for a 15-minute observation period, which is required after the vaccine is administered.
The mobile site will serve the community through the summer months, the school board said. The exact start date has not been released.
