North Colonie families,
Earlier this week, we told you about a vaccination clinic at the Colonie High School gymnasium on Saturday, April 17 for ages 16 and older. It has been brought to our attention there are concerns regarding the date for the second dose, May 8, due to the administration of the SAT’s that day.
In response, Colonie High School will now host the second vaccination from 9:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m on May 9. By changing this date, there will be no conflict with students taking part in SAT exams the morning of May 8.
Due to the remaining number of slots, we are now opening this up to North and South Colonie students 16 years of age or older AND any eligible household members.
Please use this link to sign up.
