The Camden City School District hosted on Thursday its first COVID-19 vaccination clinic for eligible students, in advance of the start of in-person classes in September.

The clinic, held at Thomas H. Dudley Family School in East Camden, was conducted in partnership with the Camden County Health Department, the Camden Coalition, and CAMCare Health Corp. Though the aim was to reach students 12 and older who are eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine, the shots were also made available to adults who wanted them.

Pfizer’s two-dose vaccine remains the only one authorized for children ages 12-15 in the United States.
