Teachers and school employees will be in the next round of people to get a Covid-19 vaccine in Ohio

The next group of people to receive the Covid-19 vaccine in Ohio will be the state’s teachers and school staff.

Ohio teachers and school staff including cafeteria workers, bus drivers, custodians and clerical workersalong with any other worker who comes in contact with the children at that schoolwill be in the next group of people to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, Ohio Governor MIke DeWine announced during a news conference Wednesday.
DeWine said he wants to start Covid-19 vaccinations mid-January and to offer them at all schools that want to continue or begin in-person learning.
DeWine hopes vaccinating teachers and staff will help get students back in school faster. 現在, 45% of all Ohio students are fully remote and 26% of students are in a hybrid model, or partially remote, DeWine said.
