COVID-19 Vaccines for Employees

School employees can be vaccinated

On Monday, March 8, 2021, access to three available COVID-19 vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson) expanded in Georgia, to include all teachers and school district employees. 

Where can employees be vaccinated?

In addition to the choices of multiple local and area providers that our employees have, the school district will offer dedicated vaccine clinics for just our employees, substitutes, and Cedarwood faculty and staff. See the list of Important Vaccine Clinic Dates on this website.

The school district will coordinate with local providers to host additional clinics at our schools and offices based on employee demand.

How to schedule an appointment

For Bulloch County Schools' clinics on March 12 and March 19 at the Bulloch County Health Department: The school district provided a link to an online appointment scheduling tool to employees via their email.  It is also available in employees' Google Drive folder in District Office - COVID-19 - COVID-19 Vaccine. 

For Bulloch County Schools' clinic on March 19 at our Transportation & Technology Annex for bus drivers and bus monitors: Nightingale Home Care Services will host the clinic.  Contact our Transportation Director to schedule an appointment.

For future Bulloch County Schools' clinics:  As additional vaccine supply is confirmed and more clinics are scheduled, the school district will communicate the necessary information to employees. 

For vaccines at other local and area providers:  The State of Georgia has expanded access to the COVID-19 vaccines to all public school district employees. Employees may contact any local or area provider of the vaccine and make their own appointment to receive a vaccine, and select a provider who offers the vaccine type you prefer. 

How to prepare for my vaccine

Bulloch County Schools clinics: If you will attend one of the school district's clinics, it's important to review this information before you go to your appointment.

Other local and area providers: If you will make an appointment to receive your vaccine at another local or area provider, be sure to contact them about their requirements and how you should prepare to receive your vaccine. 

What vaccine will be used at school district clinics?

Bulloch County Schools' COVID-19 vaccine clinics will administer the one-dose, Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which our state has reserved for school system employees. According to medical personnel it offers 100% immunity within two weeks. A fact sheet about this vaccine type is posted for your review on this website.

If you prefer to have the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, you may contact other local and area vaccine providers to check their availability. These vaccines require two doses, and according to medical personnel, offer immunity within six weeks.

Are Vaccines voluntary?

Being vaccinated is your personal choice. The school district will not require you to be vaccinated as a condition of  employment.  While there is no requirement for our employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, this is one more important way that we can help keep employees and students safer, mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and help prevent possible quarantines.

Information about the vaccines

The Georgia Department of Public Health has provided this information about COVID-19, which includes how those who are vaccinated may avoid being quarantined if certain criteria is me.

The Centers for Disease Control’s website is also a credible source for information and frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.

All clinics are not alike

School districts across the state have been asked to work with their local healthcare providers to organize clinics for educators. Each district will be unique in how they work with their local partners to host clinics, so while you may see or hear details about other school districts’ clinics, please note that each is organized to best fit their local needs and there will be similarities and differences.  What is important is to know what we are doing in Bulloch County.
