Walk-In COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic on Monday, Nov. 15, at Civic Center

The City of Wyoming and Wyoming City Schools are partnering with Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH) to provide a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic in Wyoming on Monday, Nov. 15. The walk-in clinic will take place 2-5 p.m. at the Wyoming Civic Center, 1 Worthington Avenue.

The clinic is open to all those eligible for vaccination (ages 5 and older) or boosters:

  • No appointments needed. No cost. No insurance required. 

  • Minors must have a parent or guardian present at time of vaccination.

  • HCPH plans to have supplies of Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Moderna vaccines onsite. 

  • A second clinic is scheduled for 2-5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 7. 

For those receiving first COVID-19 vaccine dose:

HCPH is offering a $100 Visa gift card to those receiving their first dose. To receive a gift card, you must have a photo ID (any ID with your name and photo, including expired or international identification). Minors must have a parent or guardian on-site. While supplies last. If HCPH does not have a card at the time of vaccination, they will send one to you as soon as possible.

Boosters:

Johnson & Johnson: People 18 years and older should receive a booster shot at least 2 months after receiving their Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. This booster can be any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States.

Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna: People 65 years and older and people 18 years and older who live in long-term care settings, have underlying medical conditions, or work or live in high-risk settings are eligible to receive a booster shot 6 months after their second vaccination shot. This booster can be any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States.

If you are receiving a booster dose, please bring your vaccine card to the clinic. To replace lost or damaged vaccination cards, complete this survey from the Ohio Department of Health. It may take 1-2 business days to process your request.

Achieving high levels of COVID-19 vaccination among eligible staff, students, and household members is one of the most critical strategies to help schools safely continue full operations. If you or your child are eligible to be vaccinated, please get vaccinated. Vaccination is the best way to protect your family, friends, colleagues, and yourself.

Thank you for your continued partnership in keeping our community healthy!

At Wyoming City Schools, we believe in building opportunities for the Wyoming Community to come together and be engaged in conversations around topics that matter. With that in mind, we are excited to restart our CommUNITY Conversation Series! Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 18; Thursday, January 27; and Wednesday, April 6. On each night, we’ll explore a topic, engage in small group discussions, and gather feedback to build upon in our ongoing work to continuously improve.

The 2021-2022 CommUNITY Conversation Series will take place at 7 p.m. at Wyoming High School and cover the following topics:

Thursday, November 18: Belonging

Thursday, January 27: Strategic Planning

Wednesday, April 6: Financial Update

Based upon correspondence we’ve received and comments at our most recent Board of Education meetings, we believe there is a misconception about what Critical Race Theory is and what it means for education. In response, we’d like to start this year’s CommUNITY Conversation series addressing the work Wyoming City Schools is doing related to diversity, inclusion, and fostering a sense of belonging in all members of our Wyoming school community.

Critical Race Theory is an advanced academic framework most commonly found in law schools and colleges that examines the systems, policies and laws that perpetuate racial inequities in our society, and how those inequities can be eliminated. There are people who do not support conversations related to race during the school day, who define Critical Race Theory differently and are accusing school districts of teaching Critical Race Theory as they define it. By either definition, Wyoming City Schools does not teach Critical Race Theory. 

Wyoming City Schools teaches a thorough, accurate, and fact-based history education that aligns with Ohio’s Learning Standards for Social Studies. Wyoming teachers are thoughtful in how they teach the hard parts of history. They facilitate discussion on difficult, important topics to help students grow, develop, and learn to think for themselves.

In Wyoming City Schools, we teach that racism is wrong. Wyoming students learn to value, recognize, and respect the humanity and dignity of every person. We are proud of the diversity of our student body and believe it’s imperative we give our students learning environments where their identities and voices are affirmed, valued, and represented. Rooted in our Climate and Culture goal area, we are working to create a school community culture where all members feel connected and engaged. We are building a culture where all members feel a true sense of belonging. This work helps to support our students today while also preparing them for their future in an ever-changing world.

Please join us at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 18, for a CommUNITY Conversation on Belonging. We’ll explore the work of Wyoming City Schools in this area more deeply and gather your thoughts and feedback.

As always, we are so very thankful for your partnership!
