Resources for School-Located Vaccination Events
Local Health Jurisdictions, school districts and individual schools all play a significant role in the collective effort to keep students healthy and in school. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) continues to build resources to support school-located vaccine (SLV) events for COVID-19 vaccine, seasonal influenza vaccine and other routine immunizations.
Benefits of SLV events include:
- the ability to immunize large numbers of children in a short timeframe
- increasing access to underserved students and their families by making vaccination more convenient
- decreasing illness-specific school absences and lowering disease transmission and hospitalization rates in surrounding communities
- maximizing opportunities for students and families to stay up-to-date on recommended vaccines
