PHARR, Texas (KVEO) — The Pharr-San Juan-Alamo (PSJA) Independent School District (ISD) hosted a vaccination clinic for their students on Thursday.
The district wants to give students access to mandatory vaccines by the state.
Tuesday was the first clinic, but the district says more are scheduled in the coming months.
“They’re offering the vaccine [for] free to a low cost for the mandatory vaccines and the HP [human papillomavirus] vaccine will also be administered to all students from our district,” said Sulema Solis, Director of Health Services at PSJA ISD.
District officials add all COVID-19 safety guidelines recommended by the CDC are being followed at the clinic.
The vaccines are funded through a grant for the University of Texas Medical Branch said the district.
