FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Broward County Public Schools partnered with the Florida Department of Health to provide the two doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to students who are 16 years old or older, school staff and students’ parents or guardians.
The vaccination team will travel from school to school during the next two weeks. The schools on the list for Tuesday are Blanche Ely, Bright Horizons, Coconut Creek and Broward Virtual (at Coconut Creek High), Cypress Run Education Center, Deerfield Beach, and Monarch.
Jon Marlow, the principal at Deerfield Beach High School Principal, welcomed the program.
