This past Friday, April 16, Seniors from Edinburg and Harlingen’s High school were able to get their first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.
DHR in partnership with Edinburg CISD vaccinated nearly 2,000 students 18 years old at the Edinburg Conference Center.
School Officials want to offer their students the possibility of a more normal college experience, with the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Students recognize these efforts, Brian Rodriguez a high school senior who got vaccinated on the site said: “I think it’s important because as the young age, the young generation, we’re always out and about and we’re kind of known for spreading it, personally I don’t want to get infected and then I have it and then bring it home to my family.”
Now the district, in a partnership with DHR Health, is looking to move onto those students age 16 and older.
