ACPS is currently in discussions with the Blue Ridge Health District (BRHD) and local government to plan a COVID-19 vaccination program that will be available to all school division employees. The BRHD is leading vaccination program decisions in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).
You may already know that vaccinations are taking place in phases that prioritize those most vulnerable to contracting COVID-19. Our local health department is now in Phase 1a of its vaccination operations. The next phase, Phase 1b, will include all ACPS employees. While the timeline for Phase 1b is in discussion, the BRHD anticipates that it could begin as early as March.
The vaccine that will be administered to our employees is being produced by Moderna. For more information about the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, you can view Moderna’s Fact Sheet for Recipients.
We will continue to keep you updated on this program as decisions are finalized. You can also learn about BRHD COVID-19 Vaccination Updates through the VDH COVID-19 Vaccination web page. For answers to frequently asked questions, please visit the VDH Vaccination FAQ page.
The COVID-19 vaccine will be provided to ACPS employees at no cost.
