Vaccinations not mandated
Vaccination for COVID-19 is strongly recommended as the primary mitigation strategy. The Davis School District encourages vaccinations, but also recognizes individual choice. Currently the vaccine is only offered to those 12 years of age and older.
As vaccinations become available for students under the age of 12, the school district and health department will offer vaccination clinics in area school buildings. Again, the district recognizes individual choice. Vaccinations will not be given without parental approval.
If someone chooses to be vaccinated, they are considered fully immune or protected from the virus 2 weeks after their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
• Two-dose vaccines: 2 weeks after the 2nd shot (both shots are needed to be fully protected).
• One-dose vaccines: 2 weeks after shot (only one shot is needed to be fully protected).
This means if someone is exposed to an individual who tests positive for COVID-19, they don’t have to quarantine if it has been 2 weeks since their final shot.
Individuals do NOT need to wait 90-days after testing positive to get vaccinated. People can get vaccinated as soon as they are no longer in isolation or quarantine and don’t have any symptoms of COVID-19.
