School based COVID-19 vaccination clinics for 12- to 17-year-olds

The Department of Health in partnership with the Department of Education will be running school-based COVID-19 vaccination clinics in some Nunavut schools beginning September 1.

Teams of nurses will travel to the communities to offer vaccine to students aged 12 to 17. The vaccine is not mandatory but it is the best way to protect yourself, and your community from severe COVID-19 infection and hospitalization.

The majority of clinics will be held over the course of the school day, excluding the lunch break.
