The week of February 22-26, Edmond Public Schools private, third-party health provider Total Wellness will make available approximately 2050 Moderna Covid-19 vaccines to EPS employees.
Over the last several days, the district has been working behind the scenes with Total Wellness to set up four separate vaccination pods at two district locations; Edmond Schools Administrative Center (EPSAC) and Edmond Santa Fe High School.
In an email to parents, Superintendent Bret Towne said, “Employee vaccinations and the soon-to-be-completed work of the Covid Advisory Committee are crucial to creating a safe environment in our schools and a major step forward in reopening our classrooms to more full-time, in-person instruction.”
Total Wellness nurses will distribute the vaccines. District and some school staff volunteers will assist the nurses with collecting paperwork and other administrative duties. The pods are exclusive to teachers and school staff. Employees received a link to sign up for the opportunity to receive the vaccine.
Only those who receive the first dose with EPS will be eligible to receive the second dose.
The tentative dates for employees to receive the second dose of the Moderna vaccines are March 26-April 2.
