Vaccine clinics at four public schools in Forsyth last week resulted in 568 people getting their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools hosted the clinics in collaboration with the Forsyth County Department of Public Health. 

Of the 568 vaccinated, 443 were students and 125 were adults.

While people under 18 can, in most cases, choose to be vaccinated without parental consent in North Carolina, minors being getting a shot at on-campus clinics in Forsyth did require a parent's OK.
