Belton ISD Joins with Community Partners to Offer COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics
Belton ISD is partnering with the Texas National Guard and the Bell County Public Health District to offer free Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for anyone age five and up. These are the district’s first clinics since children ages 5-11 were approved for the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Our hope is that offering community-wide vaccine clinics at our campuses will make it easier and more convenient for families to get vaccinated if they choose to do so,” said Marylisa Fanning, director of Health Services in Belton ISD. “We are thankful to have community partners come alongside us to help make this possible.”
The walk-in clinics, which are open to the public, will be held at the following schools on these dates and times:
Chisholm Trail Elementary (1082 S. Wheat Rd.) Nov. 17 and Dec. 8 from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
Southwest Elementary (611 S. Saunders St.) Nov. 18 and Dec. 9 from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
Lakewood Elementary (11200 FM 2305 in Temple) Nov. 19 and Dec. 10 from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
Belton New Tech High School @ Waskow — Mega Bytes Cafe (320 N. Blair St.) Nov. 20 and Dec. 11 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Individuals interested in receiving the vaccine should review the following information:
The walk-in clinics are available for anyone 5 years of age and older to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination.
Please bring a vaccination card with you if you have one.
Parents must be present for a child under age 18 to receive the vaccine.
The second dose will be scheduled on site after the first dose is received.
“We hope all community members, not just those connected to Belton ISD, will take advantage of this opportunity if it's helpful to them,” Fanning said. “As a reminder, Belton ISD does not require staff or students to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, but we’re happy to help make it available to those who want it.”
