Central Schools staff who want to receive the COVID-19 vaccine are invited to get their second shot at special drive-up COVID immunization clinics scheduled for Wednesday, February 24, and Saturday, February 27, 2021. The morning session will start at 9:00 a.m. The afternoon session will start at 1:00 p.m. The clinics will take place at Shiprock High School, provided by Northern Navajo Medical Center (NNMC). Should there be a change of venue, we will let you know on the CCSD website and social media channels. These events will be limited to school district employees and contractors. Employees will be allowed up to 2 hours of paid time to get the vaccine.
To receive the COVID vaccine, you:
- should be a Central School employee or contractor. Remember to bring your identification.
- should be 16 years of age or older
- should not have had COVID illness within the past 90 days
- should not have had another immunization (flu, shingles) in the past 2 weeks
- preferably should be an active patient at Northern Navajo Medical Center
- bring a pen. Bring water. Be prepared to wait in line. Remember to wear your mask.
- bring your COVID-19 vaccination record card
Since NNMC is required to document each dose of vaccine provided, it helps if people are active patients at NNMC. Many CCSD staff members already have active patient records at NNMC. Staff who do not have a chart at NNMC, or who haven't been seen there in several years can call patient registration ON THE DATE OF VACCINATION at (505) 368-6065 to set up a new chart, or re-activate an old one.
Staff who choose not to have a chart at NNMC, will need to fill out additional paperwork onsite for CDC’s Vaccine Administration Management System, in order to get their COVID shot.
Scheduling is dependent on vaccine availability.
CCSD does not currently require the COVID-19 vaccination, but highly recommends the practice. Information about the vaccine and how it works is available to anyone who requests it. The higher number of staff who are vaccinated will help protect students and their families. It will also create a safer environment for each of us who gets the vaccine.
