    Seattle Public Schools wants to ensure that all students, staff, and families have access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

    SPS is excited to partner with the City of Seattle, Public Health – Seattle & King County, and Seattle Fire Department to host COVID-19 vaccination clinics for students 12 and older, so students can be fully vaccinated and protected from the COVID-19 virus before in-person graduation and in advance of a full-time, in-person return to school this fall.
