Gateway Health partnered with the school district for the event. The goal was to get as many people protected.

“They are children, they are scared. But we are here to give them that comfort along with their parents in order for them to not only stay safe in school but also safe in their community,” Jean Cubiltte of Gateway Health said.

Booster shots were also available to those who qualified. Another clinic will be held in January for kids to get their second dose.
