The Freeport School District offered vaccines to students, including those 12-15, and staff.
The on-site program Friday was part of a partnership with Northwell Health.
The Pfizer vaccine was offered to students 12 and older, and staff, at Freeport High School and were administered by nurses from Northwell Health.
Freeport High School Principal Joseph Mille says that the district has been a leader in getting information out to the community, and to students and staff.
“Our superintendent has been wonderful, along with our Board of Education,” Mille says.
Students 12-17 years old had to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Mille tells News 12 that students and staff were vaccinated in the high school gym until 2 p.m.
Eleventh grader Jamael Johnson says it’s “really good” that him and his friends can get vaccinated in their own school.
Parents like Chris Fisenne also say it’s great to get back to normalcy and reality.
Children and adults who received their COVID-19 vaccines at Freeport High School will be back in three weeks for the second dose of the vaccine.
