, officials with the Charleston County School District say the vaccinations will be administered by school nurses at up to six separate school sites. The nursing staff numbers about 120 people.
According to Jeff Borowy, the district's Chief Operating Officer, 75% of teachers and employees have shown interest in receiving the vaccine. Officials with the CCSD claim that the vaccination order will be determined at random using a school lottery system; while the order among the school staff will be managed by the principals.
Districts want to hold eLearning days to address any staffing problems or side effects that people can experience after receiving the vaccine. Borowy believes it's very important to get this vaccine because despite having positive COVID cases in every school now, teachers are always going out and doing God's work to have the kids educated.
Berkeley County School District, Dorchester District Two, and Colleton County School District also released information about their vaccination plans. To read the complete article, visit: Lowcountry School Districts Prepare to Vaccinate Teachers and Staff
