KISD vaccination

Nearly 300 Killeen Independent School District students received the first shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at the former Nolan Middle School on Monday. KISD and Baylor Scott & White have teamed together to vaccinate area residents 12 and older. Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian with them to receive the vaccine.

Everyone age 12 and up are able to get a free coronavirus vaccine during a series of shot clinics at participating Killeen area schools between now and July 15.

The Killeen Independent School District and Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s began providing kids age 12 and older with free COVID-19 vaccines on Monday.

Nearly 300 students received the vaccine at the former Nolan Middle School on Monday. Baylor Scott & White outpatient director Dr. Jamie Avila said it was “a dream come true” to collaborate with Killeen ISD to provide vaccination clinics for students and other community members.

Officials said the vaccination clinics are open to the public without an appointment.

Avila said access to the community was greatly accelerated with the partnership.

“We’re excited to be able to get a grasp on this pandemic,” she said.

Residents 12 and older are welcome to receive a vaccine, regardless of whether they are with the school district, according to school district spokeswoman Taina Maya. Medical staff from the hospital will be at four KISD campuses this week to administer the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to children and their parent or guardian.

Parents or guardians must be present for a child to receive the vaccine, Maya said. No appointment is necessary. Each location will be staffed with a doctor and nurse to answer questions about the vaccine, and the sites will stay open until 6:30 p.m. to accommodate working parents.

The sites are for the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. Appointments for the second shot will be made at the time of receipt of the first shot.

To expedite the process, residents can sign up for a free MyBSWHealth account.

Houston Methodist Hospital orders staff to withhold adverse reactions caused by covid vaccines from official records

NEW EVIDENCE Proves Dr. Fauci and CDC Prevented Use of Proven Drug on COVID-19 and HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS DIED -- When Will Americans Wake Up?

Well, I guess we learned the hard way that with just a little "gain of function," just about any viral illness can be turned into a Pandemic if you don't treat the symptoms (with medicine you already have) and you deliberately cause it to spread (Nursing Homes, etc)! What the Democrats and the Chinese did was a crime against humanity! Each must be held accountable and must be severely punished!

Heights Teacher

Thank you Killeen ISD and Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Hospital for providing vaccinations for our students. Trust the science or the lay public, it's always your choice! Looking forward to next school year with much less to worry about.

I trust the "lay" public who have lost loved ones whe died and/or had adverse effects of the poison and have been silenced by communists like you heights teacher. VAERS only reports 1% of the deaths and adverse effects on ALL vaccines. Vaccine Companies are NOT liable for deaths or injuries. Life Insurance won't pay for deaths caused by this EXPERIMENTAL vaccine. It is NOT science if you are not allowed to question it. Your comment is irresponsible at best. I have learned that teachers, doctors, scientist are NOT always trustworthy or smart.

Trust the science?

Coercion is NOT science.

WITHHOLDING data is NOT science.

MANIPULATING data is NOT science.

CHERRYPICKING studies is NOT science.

SOCIAL CONDITIONING is NOT science.

FEAR MONGERING is NOT science.

PHARMA PROPOGANDA is NOT science.

Which document is referred to as the Security Instrument?

Imagine a depopulation plan so diabolical and so perfect you could literally pull it off without 90% of the herd even knowing what was going on.

Or even better get the herd to ignore their own fate and actively participate in it.

You are watching it in real time right NOW!!!
