Spread Love, Not COVID: Community Edition
The Phoenix Union High School District (PXU) and partners have administered over 30,000 COVID vaccines to the community since January.
The District is excited to announce that it will offer the FDA-approved Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at Metro Tech High School every Saturday in September from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Attendees who are 18+ will also have the option of receiving the Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines. Additionally, PXU will offer the FDA-approved Pfizer vaccine at all campuses on a rotational basis. If a student would like to receive the vaccine, they will need to have their parent sign our Informed Consent form. (Spanish Version). The full schedule and more details are below.
PXU would like to thank United Healthcare Community Plan, Albertsons/Safeway Pharmacies, Native Health, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, Lyft, and Wesley Community & Health Centers for their ongoing support and partnership. Please see below for locations and hours of operation.
