About 80 teenagers, 16 and older, were vaccinated against COVID-19 at North High School on Wednesday. The students took part in an Akron Children’s Hospital teen vaccination program that will roll out at high schools across northeast Ohio over the next several weeks.

The Children’s Hospital vaccination program began hosting the clinics last week, moving from high school to high school, administering first doses of the Pfizer vaccine to the teens.
