COVID-19 vaccination clinics coming to most YK1 schools

To all YK1 families: Attached is a letter from the Northwest Territories Health and Social Services Authority explaining that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine will be offered in most YK1 schools this coming Wednesday, May 19, 2021. These immunization clinics will be for youth aged 12-17 who have not yet received their first dose of this vaccine. Getting vaccinated helps prevent or reduce the risk of severe COVID-19 disease, both for the person immunized and for others. Even if you are not at high risk of severe disease from COVID-19, it is important to think of your friends, family, and other community members you can help protect. It is much safer to get the vaccine than to get the disease. Please read the attached letter - available in English and French - to learn more. Also attached are bilingual information sheets and immunization consent forms.
