Georgia superintendents discuss vaccine rollout as Phase 1A+ expansion opens

After a year of virtual or hybrid learning for many Georgia school systems, teachers and staff finally have the chance to be vaccinated starting next week. On Thursday, school superintendents from across the state spoke with Governor Brian Kemp's office about their plans for getting educators vaccinated. The state is scheduled to receive 83,000 doses of the newly authorized Johnson and Johnson vaccine next week. Districts that do not receive a shipment of Johnson and Johnson will use either Pfizer or Moderna. Loke says each district is in charge of their own vaccination plan and scheduling. He says there is enough vaccine supply in the state to accommodate the educators and staff who have said they want the vaccine. Bibb County Superintendent Curtis Jones says they have partnered with Atrium Health Navicent to work with their team and nurses within the school system to give the vaccine on March 13.
