Year after year, educators hope to have multiple pens, sheets of paper, erasers, rulers and calculators to help them get through a class. Now most of them are thankful to add COVID-19 vaccination shots to that same list.
Nearly 1,000 of the 2,000 educators and teachers from throughout Solano County took advantage of vaccine invitations and made appointments for their shots, according to Lisette Estrella-Henderson, the county’s superintendent of schools. Many had attended a vaccine clinic last week at the Solano County Office of Education.
In Napa County, 950 doses were made available to Napa district and county office of education teachers. The county has released 1,000 more doses to be administered to all Napa County school staff Monday and Tuesday, according to American Canyon High principal Crystal Lopez.
