Evanston/Skokie School District 65 is collaborating with the city on a possible vaccine clinic ahead of the potential approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11, the district announced in a Tuesday news release. 

The announcement comes after the Food and Drug Administration announced its endorsement of the lower-dose vaccine for that age range. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will review the FDA’s proposal soon. 

District 65 is looking to host the event on district property as soon as the vaccine is approved. According to the release, the site will likely be the Joseph E. Hill Education Center. If capacity is met at the event and demand continues, further events will be scheduled. 

The district will share more information once details are finalized.
