In its November 10th press briefing, the White House COVID-19 Response Team made mention of school-based clinics as an integral part of a COVID vaccination strategy for children aged 5-11 years:


'We’re making important progress in our fight against the virus across three fronts: vaccinations, testing, and ensuring our response is equitable and reaches the hardest-hit communities and those most at risk. On vaccinations: Our program for kids ages 5 through 11 is hitting full strength this week, with 20,000 trusted and convenient locations coming online. This includes pediatricians and family doctors’ offices, pharmacies, children’s hospitals, community health centers, rural health clinics, and school-based clinics.'
