In November 2021, USN shared a grade-level breakdown of COVID-19 vaccination rates among students in grades 12-7. Since then, vaccination has been approved for children ages 5-11, and our Health Team has collected data on vaccination rates across USN's student population. Rates continue to rise, particularly among younger students, and on Thursday, January 27, the Health Room received notification that the class of 2026 is fully vaccinated. Learn more below.
