To WHS Families:

The Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) will be hosting a COVID-19 Pfizer vaccination clinic this Saturday, May 1, 2021 at the Danbury Fair Mall for WHS students who are 16 years of age or older.

The clinic at the Danbury Fair Mall, 7 Backus Ave, Danbury will be from 8:30am-11:00am.

This will be a drive-through clinic, please follow the signs in the parking lot. You must be pre-registered to attend.

Please use the below link to register.

If your student is under 18 it requires the consent of the guardian.  If they are over 18 they can self-register.  This event is intended for all students 16+ regardless of grade.  Parents do not need to attend the vaccination clinic with their students but of course they are welcome to if they would like to.  As 16 and 17 year olds cannot register themselves, but instead require parental consent in order to register, any student who is registered for the event can receive the vaccine without the presence of their parent.   Once they complete the registration process, they will receive a confirmation email confirming the time they selected and the date and location.

When students arrive for vaccination, they will be provided the pre-vaccination questionnaire, which they will need to answer at the site.  They will receive these questions with their confirmation email so that they can talk to their parents if they need information or advice on any of the questions.  They can bring their student ID with them, although ID is not required for vaccination.  If they have health insurance, they should bring the health insurance card with them, however it too is not required to receive the vaccine.

After students receive the vaccine, they will need to wait for either 15 or 30 minutes.  They wait for 30 minutes if they have ever been prescribed an epi-pen or if the vaccinator in reviewing their pre-vaccination questionnaire feels they might have a propensity to an adverse reaction. 

The CHC will welcome WHS students back for their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine according to the following schedule:

First Dose

Second Dose

Time Frame

May 1st

May 22nd

8:30-11:00

Students will come back for their second dose at the same time that they scheduled themselves for the first dose.

 We wish to extend our thanks to the CHC for providing 16 and older students with this opportunity!
