Back-to-School BASH canceled, Back-to-School Shots to be offered at PAC

Due to the rise in COVID stages and the size of the event, we have decided to cancel the 2021 AISD Back-to-School BASH scheduled for Aug. 7 at the Palmer Events Center. However, we will still be hosting a Back-to-School Shot clinic for families to get their students their required shots for the start of school.

Information on backpacks: If your child was hoping to get a backpack full of school supplies, don’t worry. We were still able to provide over 17,000 backpacks and school supplies to every campus in the district. These backpacks have been delivered to schools near you this week and will help students who need them start the school year right. Please contact your campus for distribution details.

Information on Back to School Shots: We are still offering free back-to-school shots (per Texas minimum requirements) that are required by law to attend school. COVID-19 Pfizer vaccines will also be available, but are not required to attend school. The new location will be at the Austin ISD Performing Arts Center (1500 Barbara Jordan Blvd, Austin, TX 78723) from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7. This opportunity is being hosted by VAX Together Austin and Walgreens. Walk-ins are welcome!

  • Since this Back-to-School shot clinic is a medical site, masks will be required for everyone entering into the site.
  • A parent or guardian must be present.
  • Please bring your child’s immunization/shot records if available.
  • The COVID-19 (Pfizer) vaccine opportunity is available for individuals 12 years of age and older.
