With COVID-19 vaccines just around the corner, one North Texas school superintendent is pushing for teachers to be among the first to receive them.
In announcing his initial COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, Governor Abbott said frontline workers would be among the first to get the vaccine. Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Kent Scribner sent a letter to the governor, asking him to consider teachers and other school personnel as frontline workers.
In his letter, Dr. Scribner said teachers are on the front lines every day, interacting with children and adults as they teach in person. Abbott says the first vaccines should begin arriving in the state the week of December 14.
