NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – NOLA-PS officials have announced that they will be running a list of events throughout November to try to get some of their younger students vaccinated.

The first of the 7 events is scheduled for this Saturday (November 13) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Arthur Ashe Charter School in Gentilly.

The locations of other drives include:

  • Mildred Osborne Elemental
  • Langston Hughes Academy Charter School
  • Phillis Wheatley Community School
  • Edward Hynes Charter School – Parkview
  • Edward Hynes Charter School
  • Get up elementary

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged as vaccines will be administered on a first come, first served basis. While U.S. health officials recently cleared vaccines for children as young as 5, NOLA-PS officials report that vaccines will be available for all ages.

In a statement announcing the event, Superintendent Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. said:

“Our ongoing vaccination campaigns will protect our youngest learners and help improve the health and safety of our school community, while potentially helping us to overcome this pandemic.”
