Safe. Effective. Free.
Let’s all do what we need to do to keep each other safer. If you haven’t been fully vaccinated, it’s more important than ever for you to make an appointment today. If you’ve been partially vaccinated, follow up about your next dose. If you have a loved one who hasn’t gotten their vaccine, encourage them to schedule an appointment or find a walk-in clinic. We can do this if we just remember that #VaccinesSaveLives.

Parent Safety Page
The Safe Schools Parent Page explains the steps that schools are taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
What can parents do to feel confident that their children won’t become infected? Two things:
- Get vaccinated. All children 12 and older, along with adult family members, should get vaccinated. It’s the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the virus.
- Talk to your child’s school. There are many safety layers that help keep schools safe. Look on your child’s school’s website or reach out to your child’s school to find out details about its COVID-19 safety plan. Every school is required to develop a COVID-19 safety plan and post it online.
What are the ways to avoid transmission? Ways to avoid COVID-19 transmission in schools include:
- Vaccines for children 12 and older, along with all adults in your family
- Masks worn by all students and school staff indoors
- Good ventilation in classrooms
- Keep your child home from school if they are sick
- Regular COVID-19 testing in schools can detect the virus in students and staff even when they don’t feel sick
- Contact tracing to alert parents if your child was in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19
- Wash hands frequently
What are my options if my child tests positive and I have to stay home from work with them?
