Due to the number of students who have enrolled for the 1st vaccine clinic on Thursday, September 9, 2021, we have worked with OhioHealth to add a 2nd clinic for Thursday, September 16, 2021, again from 3pm to 7pm at Lakeview Junior High, 12445 Ault Rd., Pickerington OH 43147. Note that this clinic is NOT the 2nd dose for those who got their 1st dose on September 9, 2021 — this is a separate clinic for the ‘overflow’ of students that were not able to register for the clinic on September 9. The second dose for this second clinic will be announced at a later time. 

The registration form for the September 16, 2021, clinic can be accessed by clicking on this link.

Those who register for this 2nd clinic will be eligible for their events beginning on Friday, September 17, 2021 as long as they get the first dose on Thursday, September 16th as planned. (Note: Students must complete the vaccination cycle by getting the second dose at the second District-sponsored clinic for the Tiger or Panther Vax cards to remain valid after the second clinic [date/time of 2nd clinic TBD])

This clinic will be in the parking lot at Lakeview JH12445 Ault Rd., Pickerington OH 43147from 3pm to 7pm on Thursday, September 16, 2021 (the date and time for the 2nd dose will be provided at a later date).

To encourage vaccination for those students eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, we will also be providing each student who chooses to be vaccinated with a Tiger Vax Card (Ridgeview and Central students), or a Panther Vax Card (Lakeview and North students). A student with a Tiger or Panther Vax Card will be entitled to attend 2021-2022 school-sponsored sports events, dances, plays and other activities for free! The details of this program are as follows:
  • The student must be at least 12 years of age and attend Lakeview, Ridgeview, North, or Central (or be a part of the Pickerington Virtual Learning Academy as a 7th thru 12th grader; Pickerington Alternative School students will be included in their home high school)
  • The student must be unvaccinated for COVID-19–students who have already been vaccinated or who have completed any COVID-19 vaccine doses are not eligible for the incentive
  • Parents must consent to their child being vaccinated, and must be in attendance at the event on Thursday, September 9 for their child to be vaccinated; parents must also be in person for their child’s 2nd dose (date/time TBD)
  • The Tiger and Panther Vax Cards will entitle each cardholder to attend 10 events at Pickerington North HS (North/Lakeview students), or 10 events at Pickerington Central HS (Central/Ridgeview students); Lakeview JH and Ridgeview JH students only will also get 5 additional events at each respective junior high
  • The events are school-sponsored events that are offered via the District’s online ticket box offices for Pickerington Central HSRidgeview STEM JH; or Pickerington North HS and Lakeview JH.  All sporting events at both high schools and both junior highs are currently offered via our online box office, as are dances (e.g., Homecoming, Prom, etc.), theater performances, and other activities
  • ADDED BONUS, FRIENDLY RIVALRY: We will be awarding 2 additional events (total of 12) to the Vax Cards for the school (Central/Ridgeview vs. North/Lakeview) that gets the most students vaccinated!  Those who register for this 2nd clinic will be eligible for their events beginning on Friday, September 17, 2021 as long as they get the first dose on Thursday, September 16th as planned.  (Note: Students must complete the vaccination cycle by getting the second dose at the second District-sponsored clinic for the Tiger or Panther Vax cards to remain valid after the second clinic [date/time of 2nd clinic TBD])
