WACO, TX — The Killeen ISD vaccination clinics for students and other residents are a product of collaboration with Baylor Scott & White.

The clinics made the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible to the community, and began at former Nolan Middle School with 294 students vaccinated on the first day of the event, said Baylor Scott & White Outpatient Director Dr. Jamie Avila.

“We’re excited to be able to get a grasp on this pandemic,” Avila said.

The program is administering the Pfizer vaccine; available to students and community members over the age of 12. Parents/guardians are required to be present during vaccine administration.

The clinics do not require any appointments, and residents can come in during the designated hours to get more information about the COVID-19 vaccine or be vaccinated. The sites are open until 6:30 p.m. to accommodate working parents and community members.

For more information about the vaccination sites, including locations and times, interested residents can visit the Killeen ISD website.
