With plans to vaccinate 1,500 employees later this week, Williamson County Schools is on track to have vaccinated 2,500 employees, according to a March 2 announcement from the district.

The district has already administered 1,000 COVID-19 vaccines through its own clinic, according to WCS. The district received approval to administer vaccines earlier this year from the Tennessee Department of Health.


"The feedback from those who received the vaccine has been so positive, and we've seen so much emotion from faculty and staff after getting that first dose," WCS Superintendent Jason Golden said in a release. "It feels like we've reached a huge safety milestone. I am so thankful for the many, many people who made this a success."

As of the 2020-21 school year, the district had approximately 6,300 employees, including part-time employees and substitutes, accoding to WCS.

District employees are slated to receive their second doses later this month.
