We would like to remind our school community that COVID-19 vaccines are available for anyone age 12 and older. This vaccine is not required for school participation in Newport-Mesa, although public health authorities encourage the vaccine as an additional layer of safety for children and schools. Parental consent is required, and people under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to receive the vaccine. 

Vaccines are available through medical providers, clinics, and local pharmacies. Find details at COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Channels. For additional information, please visit the Orange County Healthcare Agency Vaccine Resources Webpage or call the COVID-19 hotline at (714) 834-2000 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
