Dear SGUSD Families,
COVID-19 vaccine appointments are available now for 16 and 17-year olds living in Los Angeles County. Go to MYTURN.CA.GOV to schedule your appointment.
If your child is 16 or 17, they must:
- Book their appointment at a vaccination site that offers the Pfizer vaccine. They will be turned away if you go to a site that does not offer Pfizer.
- Bring their parents or guardian when they come for their Pfizer vaccine appointment. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to consent for vaccination.
*Note: People under age 16 cannot get vaccinated at this time because there are no vaccines authorized for use in this age group.
In order to be vaccinated, they will need to show:
- Photo ID, and
- Proof that you live or work in LA County, and
- Proof that you are age 16 or older.
You do not need to show a government issued ID and you do not need to be a US citizen to get a vaccine. You can view the required documentation here.
The vaccines are our best protection to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe, and we highly encourage your child to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Mr. Jim Symonds
