Loving God, give to all people work that enhances human dignity and bonds us to one another.
Give us pride in our work, a fair return for our labor, and joy in knowing that our work finds its source in you.

DeLaSalle is hosting a vaccination clinic! We are providing the opportunity for those who are not yet vaccinated against COVID-19 to get a vaccine on Friday, September 10, between 3:00-6:00pm in D104. Anyone who is 12 years or older and is eligible to receive a vaccine may get their shot at the school – and those who get a shot can receive an incentive for doing so! Vaccinating nurses will bring the Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson vaccines. Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for those ages 12 or older.

Pre-register today so we can have enough vaccines, though walk-ins are welcome. Students who are younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian’s consent to receive the Pfizer vaccine. The vaccinating nurse will accept verbal consent over the phone, so make sure your parent is available by phone if you call them or have them present with you at the vaccination. 

Learn more about our COVID-19 protocols and mitigation strategies here.
