Georgetown ISD, through its partnership with Lone Star Circle of Care, is set to receive 100 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine during the week of March 1, according to Texas Department of State Health Services data.

GISD Executive Director for Communications Melinda Brasher said the district is contacting and scheduling teachers and staff for the vaccine, if they have not already been vaccinated through previous opportunities with the county. This opportunity is available to all teachers and staff whether they fall under Phase 1B or not as many staff members who qualify under Phase 1B have already been vaccinated, Brasher said.

Vaccines will take place at the district's health and wellness center, which operates out of Richarte High School, located at 2295 N. Austin Ave., Georgetown.

The district partnered with LSCC to open a new health and wellness center Jan. 4.

The center offers services for students, staff and their families and is staffed with a board-certified nurse practitioner and a behavioral health provider.
