*NOTE: The dates for the 5-11 clinic were originally announced as Nov. 16, 17 and 18. Due to demand and related logistical needs, the three clinic dates were combined into one clinic to take place Sunday, November 21. All families that completed the recent 5-11 vaccine interest survey indicating they wish to receive the vaccine for their child(ren) were notified by email of this change. Staff was also notified of the adjustment to the booster clinic date.
