💉District Employees to Receive Covid 19 Vaccine💉

February 19, 2021

Dear Parents,

I am thrilled to share the news that next week, February 22-26, the district’s private, third-party health provider Total Wellness will make available 2050 Moderna Covid-19 vaccines to EPS employees.


Over the last several days, the district has been working behind the scenes with Total Wellness to set up four separate vaccine clinics at two district locations; Edmond Schools Administrative Center (EPSAC) and Edmond Santa Fe High School. The vaccine distribution will focus on staff members' ages, comorbidities, and amount and type of daily student interaction. While the first inoculation of the Moderna vaccine produces an 80% efficacy or protection rate, two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine are required for maximum protection. Currently, employees are set to receive their second doses of the vaccine from March 26-April 2.


Employee vaccinations and the soon-to-be-completed work of the Covid Advisory Committee are crucial to creating a safe environment in our schools and a major step forward in reopening our classrooms to more full-time, in-person instruction.

Sincerely,

Superintendent Bret Towne

💜 Hope Project 2021 💜
