San Marcos CISD will partner with health infrastructure company Curative Inc. as part of an ongoing effort to vaccinate students and staff within the district against COVID-19.

Doug Wozniak, the district’s director of transportation and safety, said during the May 17 board of trustees meeting that Curative is open to customizing the process for SMCISD.

“We mentioned mobile sites to the schools as well as fixed sites throughout the summer,” Wozniak said, adding specific dates for vaccination events districtwide should be available by the end of the week. “It’s very encouraging that they want to work with us.”

Wozniak also said May 21 will complete the second round of Pfizer vaccines for students ages 16-18 as part of a program that began in April.

District staff members have been working with the Texas Department of Emergency Management and local firefighter organizations to vaccinate SMCISD's 16-, 17- and 18-year-old students with the Pfizer vaccine.

Wozniak did not disclose how many students would be vaccinated after May 21 but said once that is done, the district will focus on a vaccine program for students age 12 and older.
