QUINCY (WGEM) -- The Quincy Public School District hopes to get more people vaccinated by working with the Adams County Health Department to put on a clinic for students 16 and older.

QPS Superintendent Roy Webb said after students are fully vaccinated they will not have to quarantine if they are exposed to COVID-19.

"I think it's a good opportunity and we're blessed to be in Adams County where our children are going to be able to get that vaccine 16 and up," Webb said.

He said it will be especially beneficial to QPS students involved in extracurricular activities like sports and music over the spring and summer.

Webb said they will continue to track all COVID cases, and we will continue to follow recommended protocols.

Right now, the Pfizer vaccine is the only one approved in the U.S. for 16 and 17 year old.

The Adams County Health Department will hold the Pfizer vaccine clinic on April 17.
