Students show certificates after receiving 1st dose of vaccine

On Friday, FCCPS, in partnership with the Fairfax County Health Department, more than 500 students aged 12-18 received their first of two vaccination doses in the Henderson gym.

 FCCPS is the first school or division to hold such an event in the Fairfax Health District, which has been a tremendous partner to FCCPS. We will hold another closed pod for the second vaccination on June 11th. 

Students took home certificates above with messages about monitoring for reactions and noting how the vaccination cards are being kept safe until the second dose.
