Beginning Monday, three Stockton Unified School District schools will host COVID-19 vaccination clinics for children and adults as part of the district’s partnership with California and San Joaquin County Public Health Services to get more people vaccinated.

The first clinic will be held at August Elementary from 2-8 p.m. Monday, the second clinic will be at Huerta Elementary on Tuesday from 2:30-8 p.m. and the last clinic will be at Spanos Elementary on Friday from 2-8 p.m.

All of the clinics will have the Pfizer pediatric shot for COVID-19 available, as well as the Pfizer adult and booster shots.

The district said the vaccines and boosters are not a mandate and are being offered to people who choose to get vaccinated.
