BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – Officials with Brevard Public Schools said they will accommodate a teacher’s schedule if they have a COVID-19 vaccination appointment during class.
Brevard County residents 65 and older will start receiving the vaccine on Jan. 4.
People who qualify under these priority groups must make an appointment. The county opened a phone line on Dec. 29 for appointments but a day later switched to an online registration system due to demand. Appointments previously made by phone will still be honored. Here is the link to register online.
The district said it looks like most vaccination appointments will be from 1:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.
“BPS is committed to providing easy accessibility to the COVID-19 vaccine for our most at-risk employees currently eligible to receive it (and interested in doing so),” Superintendent Dr. Mark Mullins said in a statement. “This is a first and promising step to hopefully getting ahead of this devastating and deadly virus and we will do everything within our power to ensure those who want the vaccine can get it.”
School officials acknowledge the majority of the district’s employees work during these hours, but they will work with staff 65 and older to make sure they make it to their appointment.
