COVID-19 VACCINE

Student Vaccinations

Children and adolescents 6 months and older are now eligible to receive the COVID vaccine. Children and adolescents 5 years and older can also get a booster.

All eligible children and adolescents are strongly encouraged to get the COVID vaccine and booster. The COVID vaccine protects against severe illness from COVID.

SUBMITTING PROOF OF VACCINATION

While not required, if you’d like to submit proof of your enrolled child’s vaccination status to us:

  • Take a photo of their vaccination card and email it to your child’s school nurse or to 5vax@philasd.org.

Who can I talk to if I have questions?

A healthcare provider or school nurse can provide additional information about the vaccine.

Will there be a vaccine mandate during the 2022-2023 school this year for student-athletes?

No, there are no COVID vaccine mandates for student-athletes this year. We strongly encourage that all students remain up to date on their COVID vaccinations. Children and adolescents 6 months and older can now get the primary COVID vaccine series and those 12 years and older can receive a booster.

Do student-athletes have to provide a medical and/or religious exemption if they are unvaccinated?

There is no COVID vaccine mandate for student-athletes this year, therefore a medical and/or religious exemption for the COVID vaccine is not needed. School-mandated vaccines are still required for all students.
