Posted

Katy Independent School District announced that Randall’s Pharmacy will offer a series of optional COVID-19 vaccinations opportunities for students ages 5 to 11 at the District’s Agricultural Sciences Center location at 5825 Katy Hockley Cut Off Road, Katy.

“Over the past two school years, the District has worked to support our students and staff with resources to help navigate the global pandemic,” said KISD Director of Risk Management Lance Nauman. “Now that the Food and Drug Administration  and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  have approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for younger children, we are taking steps to make it easily accessible to our students.”

Randall’s Pharmacy will be administering the COVID-19 vaccine starting Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021, at the Katy ISD Agricultural Sciences Center, located at 5801 Hockley Cut-Off Road free of charge. Students 12-18 may also receive an initial COVID-19 immunization but are not eligible for a booster vaccination at this time.
