Livingston Parish schools announce vaccination plans for teachers

EBR and Livingston Parish teachers eligible for COVID-19 vaccine

This information comes from the Livingston Parish Public Schools:

Superintendent Joe Murphy announced today that the district is working with state health officials to make information regarding the COVID vaccination process available to all active employees of Livingston Parish Public Schools following the governor’s proclamation that K-12 school systems are now eligible to receive vaccinations.

“While there is still much uncertainty as to how the state will make vaccinations available to school districts across the state in the coming days and weeks, we have begun working with local health officials and pharmacies to make necessary preparations. At the same time, we have compiled a list of local pharmacies where employees can now make appointments for vaccinations on their own,” Murphy said.

Murphy noted that Livingston Schools anticipates receiving batches of the COVID vaccine next week; however, there is not yet any indication as to which vaccine will be made available or the quantity.

“We are preparing to administer the vaccine through an electronic sign up for our employees in anticipation of having our professional nursing staff provide the vaccinations once they arrive,” Murphy said. He said the district is currently planning to utilize the SUMA Professional Development Center for the appointments.

Murphy said all employees have been provided information on the district’s vaccination protocol, as well as a vaccination consent form that must be completed before an appointment is scheduled.

In the meantime, he suggested teachers also consider making appointments with a pharmacy in the community. Those pharmacies in Livingston Parish currently taking vaccination appointments include:
