MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Madison Metropolitan School District announced Tuesday that it will hold COVID-19 vaccine clinics across its elementary schools to immunize its littlest learners.

Children ages 5-11 will be able to receive their COVID-19 vaccines at clinics throughout December and into early January.

SSM Health, who is partnering with MMSD for the clinics, noted the district worked with its schools to identify the areas where vaccines are less readily accessible. Schools also surveyed parents to determine their interest in the vaccinations for their children.
