Seventy-five Concord High School students were vaccinated against COVID-19 at a clinic held on the high school campus Tuesday.

Employees from the Capital Area Regional Public Health Network administered the vaccines at the 5-hour event, which took place in the Concord High gymnasium during school hours.

“I think every effort we can do to provide that service for students is great,” said Concord superintendent Kathleen Murphy Tuesday, adding that the event went “very well.”

The Capital Area Public Health Network has worked with the district before, helping schedule vaccine clinics for school employees back in March.

Only Concord High students ages 16 and above were eligible for Tuesday’s clinic, and each student had New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services consent forms that were signed by their parents or guardians.

The students received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, which is the only vaccine that has yet been approved for 16- and 17-year-olds by the Food and Drug Administration. There will be a follow-up clinic May 25 for students to receive the second dose.
