All Clark County school district employees are scheduled to receive their second vaccine on March 11 and 13.
Clark County school employees received their first dose of the vaccine on Feb. 10 or 13.
Many schools in the county will be taking extra days off during the week of the vaccine clinics due to the potential side effects related to the second dose.
Nearly 80% of employees signed up to get the vaccine in the Springfield City School District. Those employees will receive their second dose on March 13.
“Due to the potential side effects associated with the second dose of the vaccine, all Springfield City School District buildings will be closed on Monday, March 15,” said Superintendent Bob Hill. “This scheduled closure will not be a virtual day, rather a day for our team to take care of themselves and rest if needed.”
Clark-Shawnee, Northeastern and Tecumseh Local School students will learn virtually on March 11 and 12. Northwestern Local School students will learn virtually on March 12 and 15.
“The whole goal is we take these two days, we go virtual to accommodate the vaccination clinic and the side effects that we know are going to come by planning in advance,” said Clark-Shawnee Superintendent Brian Kuhn.
