GHS Vaccination Clinic

Please follow the 2-Step Registration Process below to sign up for the Clinic

GPS's COVID-19 vaccination clinics are optional for families. They are an opportunity for our students to get their vaccine in an accessible, convenient, and familiar location. The vaccination is free and does not require any health insurance.


The Gloucester Health Department and Curative will be using Pfizer's COVID-19 at the O'Maley and GHS Clinics. Clinical trials have shown the Pfizer vaccine to be both safe and highly effective for those 12 years and older. For more information about the Pfizer vaccine, please see below.

First Dose Clinic at GHS: Monday, May 24 between the hours of 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

Second Dose Clinic at GHS on June 14, 2021 between the hours of 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

You only have to register once for both clinics.

Take these 2 Steps to Complete the Registration.

Gloucester Public Schools would also like to share the following additional information about the vaccination:

  • Pfizer is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine available to those under 18-years-old, and has been determined through clinical trials to be extraordinarily effective at preventing severe illness from COVID-19.

  • There is no cost to receive the vaccination.

  • Among the children and teens in Pfizer’s clinical trial who received the vaccine and not the placebo, the most common side effects following their vaccination were pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, chills, muscle pain, fever and joint pain. Side effects normally lasted 1-3 days and were more common after the second dose. These side effects are the same as those experienced by adults.

  • Side effects are a normal physical response to a vaccine, and indicate the vaccine is doing its job and teaching your body how to fight off COVID-19.

  • The vaccine does not contain the coronavirus itself, either in an active or inactive form.
