Schools plan for vaccine, in-person learning
Educators have been bumped up on the vaccine distribution list, as state leaders and health authorities work to get students back in classrooms as soon as possible.
So far, in the first group, 1a, people who have been vaccinated include healthcare workers, and staff and residents at nursing facilities. Educators are now listed as “essential workers” and have moved up in the vaccine distribution list to the second group, 1b. The Oregon Health Authority is developing a plan for rapid on-site testing to be available in schools, but that timeframe remains unclear.
