Employees of Mathews County Public Schools received their first vaccine shots earlier this week, and employees of Gloucester schools have an opportunity to get their shots on Saturday.
In an all call Wednesday evening, Gloucester County Public Schools Superintendent Walter Clemons said an initial phase of COVID-19 vaccines has been made available for 200 GCPS employees.
Clemons said the vaccinations will be administered Saturday at Riverside Walter Reed Hospital, Gloucester. If you have been identified to participate in Phase 1 of the school division’s rollout of vaccines, you should have received an email from GCPS School Nurse Coordinator Lisa Jones. The email contains registration instructions, a registration link and the registration deadline.
If you did not received an email from Lisa Jones, then you will be included in a later phase of vaccine administrations. Clemons also said some Phase 1 employees may not be available on Saturday.
As a result, an additional “wait list” of employees has been identified and will be notified by an email from Jones on Friday morning if an opportunity for a Phase 1 vaccination is available.
A vaccine clinic was held on Wednesday at Thomas Hunter Middle School, run by the Three Rivers Health District. Superintendent of Schools Nancy Welch said that 130 doses had been administered to school employees.
