Pearland ISD is partnering with Kroger to offer COVID-19 vaccines for PISD families with children age 12 and older. The district will be offering vaccines from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 18 at Pearland High School.

Students under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent, according to a press release from the district. The district also encourages masks. Those with insurance should bring their prescription insurance card, although vaccines are also free to those without insurance, according to the release.


Those interested can go to Kroger's vaccine eligibility page, answer some questions and type in the ZIP code 77581 to find Pearland High School as an option. Those interested can then select a time slot for the first dose, and can schedule the second dose as well.
