St. Athanasius School hosted a vaccine clinic on Nov. 16 for students to receive the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. During the clinic, 38 students received the shot, which is about 20 percent of the student body. Additionally, 14 staff members received booster shots. The school plans to schedule another clinic in three weeks to administer the second dose.
