FLORENCE, Ala. — Florence City Schools will host a vaccine clinic Wednesday for students ages 12 and up to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

A mobile clinic operated by North Alabama Medical Center will be set up from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. June 16 in the Florence High School parking lot. The clinic is voluntary, and students are not required to have a vaccine.

Students will need a permission slip signed by a guardian in order to receive a vaccine.

For students and families who need transportation to the clinic, bus routes are set up at Harlan Elementary, Weeden Elementary and Florence Middle schools to take students back and forth from the clinic.

The bus schedule, permission form and a vaccine facts sheet are all available on the Florence City Schools website.
