Cleveland City Schools will host an event to distribute the first dose of COVID-19 Vaccines to their employees on Saturday.

The Tennessee Department of Health released the Vaccine statewide to be distributed to the 1b group, K-12 and Child Care Staff, on Feb. 22. Cleveland City Schools is partnering with Cherokee Pharmacy to administer COVID-19 Vaccines this Saturday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. (by appointment only) in the parking lot between Ross Elementary and Yates Primary Schools.

"Cleveland City Schools is providing this Saturday vaccination site as an alternative to allow our staff to be vaccinated as quickly as possible and avoid disruptions to student instruction," officials said.

All Cleveland City Schools employees were given the opportunity to sign up to receive the vaccines.

Kelly Kiser, director of Human Resources for Cleveland City Schools, shared this about the upcoming event, “Cleveland City Schools continues to seek ways to provide for the needs of both our staff and our students during this unprecedented pandemic. We appreciate the support of Cherokee Pharmacy and the work that has taken place to make this opportunity available to our staff.”

Laura Hudson, Coordinated School Health, indicated, “Cleveland City Schools has focused on
implementing as many mitigation strategies as possible to decrease the spread of COVID-19
since the pandemic began. By providing the opportunity for our staff to receive the vaccine in a
timely manner, we are able to promote a safer school environment. We appreciate Cherokee
Pharmacy partnering with us to make this process a very accessible opportunity for our staff.”

The second dose of vaccines for these recipients will be administered in March by Cherokee
Pharmacy using a similar distribution plan.
