AISD steps up efforts to get staff vaccinated

Thursday, March 11, 2021 by Tai Moses

AISD is working with community partners like Ascension Seton, CommUnityCare, Code 4 and Austin Public Health “to provide opportunities for district staff to be vaccinated since the announcement on March 3 by the federal and state governments to prioritize educators.” Director of Health Services Alexandra Copeland said in a news release that the actions by the federal and state government “will ensure our schools will be that much safer for our students, teachers, and families and will lead us towards more students and teachers returning to the classroom.” While AISD does not provide vaccines, the district “is taking advantage of vaccine opportunities” and working “to connect staff to opportunities as they become available.” As of March 10, the school district had offered 2,670 vaccine opportunities to its employees.
