Mid-Del teachers and staff will line up at the Carl Albert High School Field House Wednesday morning and receive their COVID-19 vaccines.

When employees first arrive, they’ll get their temperatures checked. If they’re not running a fever, they’ll go inside, check-in for their appointment, and fill out forms.

The COVID-19 vaccine comes next.

Then, employees will sit in a monitoring area for about 15 minutes. If they feel sick, the district wants the staff member to raise their hand so someone can come help.

The district said the employee should take a picture of their vaccine card, just in case they lose it.

So far, 500 staff members have been vaccinated and the other half are expected to get their shots Wednesday.

At the end of December, the district lost third-grade teacher, Sandi Laughlin to COVID-19.

The district also offers COVID-19 testing for staff at the Learning Services Center every day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
