Local educators are starting to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
One hundred doses from INOVA Fairfax were recently administered to staff members of Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) who have certain conditions and work in person, according to an update from PWCS.
The school system, in partnership with NOVANT, is hoping to provide 750 more this weekend.
School Board Chair Dr. Babur Lateef, the Office of Communications Services, the pandemic team, and school nurses assisted with this effort.
PWCS plans to offer 2,400 COVID-19 vaccines later this month, as well.
Beginning January 28, it intends to continue registering other teachers and staff members.
