SCHOOL VACCINES PHOTO

Metro Creative There are 1,800 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to be distributed to Sumner County Schools employees beginning this Friday.

Sumner County Schools announced last week that it has received 1,800 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to be distributed to employees.

Hendersonville Medical Center and the Tennessee Department of Health provided the vaccine doses to the district, Director of Schools Dr. Del Phillips said in a statement.

The district will schedule remote learning days on March 5 and April 1 to allow for single-day events to provide vaccinations to school employees.

“In order to manage the logistics necessary to provide the quantity of first and second-dose vaccinations needed in single-day events, I will be scheduling distance/remote learning days for March 5, 2021, and April 1, 2021,” Phillips said in a statement. “All SCS (Sumner County Schools) students (pre-K thru high school) will learn from home on those two dates. We wanted to provide as much notice to parents about these distance/remote learning days as possible to allow families time to make appropriate accommodations.

“I am proud to say through a partnership with Sumner Regional Medical Center, we have already conducted two previous smaller clinics that provided over 1,400 vaccinations to our employees.”
