Baltimore County Public Schools sent out a statement on COVID-19 vaccines and it’s availability for BCPS staff.
“We learned this afternoon that the earliest opportunity for some BCPS employees to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be Friday, Jan. 22. Due to our size and the unknown availability of the vaccine, we are organizing BCPS employees into priority groups. Over time, all BCPS employees will have the opportunity to register for the vaccine.
“The first priority group includes the highest contact employees: Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers, Infants and Toddlers teachers, staff at the Public Separate Day Schools, as well as bus drivers and attendants; nursing assistants; substitute nurses; pupil personnel workers; and related services, food services, and technology field staff.
“As soon as registration information is available, a registration link will be shared with staff in the first priority group. After registering, interested staff will either receive an appointment or be placed on a wait list in an email from the Baltimore County Department of Health.
“We continue to collaborate with the Baltimore County Department of Health, and we will provide updates as they are available.”
