Springboro Teachers And Staff To Receive Second Dose Of Pfizer Vaccine On Friday
Springboro, OH --- Springboro Schools’ teachers and staff are scheduled to receive the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine tomorrow, Friday, March 12, 2021. The Pfizer vaccine will be administered by Passport Health at Springboro High School (1675 S. Main St. – Springboro, OH 45066) from 8:00am – 1:00pm. Passport Health is the same provider that administers the district’s staff flu shots. Friday, March 12 was already scheduled as a Teacher Workday, so there will be no school for students that day.
Teachers and staff of Springboro Schools were provided the opportunity to voluntarily sign up to receive the vaccine. More than five hundred (500) employees of Springboro Schools elected to receive the vaccine, and are scheduled to be administered their second dose tomorrow inside the Commons Area at Springboro High School. The District Nurse and all school building nurses will be on hand, along with several district staff members, to assist Passport Health during the day. Teacher and staff received their first dose on February 19.
“This is more great news for our district and community members,” said Superintendent Larry Hook. “As a district that has remained in-person all school year (with a remote option available to those in need), we are grateful to be receiving the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for our teachers and staff. Thank you again to the Springboro community for their continued cooperation, patience, and hard work as we educate our students during this challenging school year.”
