A Fairfield County school district is temporarily going remote to allow for teachers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine specifically earmarked for educators in Connecticut.

On Friday, March 5, a mass vaccination clinic is being held in Trumbull, where 800 doses of the newly approved and authorized Johnson & Johnson vaccine are set to be distributed, specifically for teachers and school staffers.

Initially, the health department said that they would be receiving approximately 200 doses of the vaccine, Trumbull Schools Superintendent Martin Semmel said, though once the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was approved by the FDA for emergency use over the weekend, the allocation was upped to 800.

In response, the entire district will be going remote on Friday to allow staff members to get vaccinated, though the online schedule has not yet been finalized as teachers will be out throughout the day to go to the high school to receive the vaccine.
