In a continued effort to protect school communities, the scheduling of select COVID-19 vaccine appointments will be available exclusively to qualifying educators, school staff and licensed childcare program staff on the following dates:

  • Friday, March 19th
  • Saturday, March 20th
  • Friday, March 26th
  • Saturday, March 27th
