COVID-19 Vaccination Opportunities

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility

    DVUSD does not require the COVID-19 vaccine for our students. This is a choice for parents to make in our District. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have recently approved the COVID-19 vaccine for students aged 5-11. For those who want more information on the vaccine, visit the CDC’s website. CLICK HERE to find vaccination opportunities in our community. Future mini-pod vaccine clinics might be scheduled early 2022.

    If you are planning on having your child receive the vaccine it is suggested that the child have a light snack prior to your arrival. In the pre-registration option a consent form is available for you to print out and bring to the vaccine site.

DVUSD Vaccine Distribution

  • In partnership with the Maricopa County Public Health Department (MCPHD) and other health agencies, DVUSD provided vaccine Points of Dispensing (PODs) on two campuses two seperate times. These PODs were for all full and part-time, public (district and charter) and private, PreK-12 school personnel in the DVUSD footprint. 


    The DVUSD Educator PODs were organized like other public PODs - drive-thru vaccinations with prescheduled appointment times. Our PODs will also offered a walk-up option for employees who do not drive or who need other accommodations.
