Walnut middle school staff to receive Covid 19 vaccination

(Grand Island, NE) - On Friday, Feb. 5, 2021, every Walnut Middle School staff member who requested to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through the voluntary GIPS-CDHD COVID-19 vaccination program will receive their first dose. 

The 30-plus staff members will be vaccinated at Walnut Middle School beginning at 8:30 a.m. and will continue until 4:30 p.m. The decision was made to provide the vaccine to these staff members because of the volume of students they serve and the higher transmissibility of the student body.

Last Friday, 208 GIPS employees, including every employee at Grand Island Senior High, Indra House, Wyandotte, Work Force Academy (high school and middle school), Skills Academy (high school and middle school) received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at GISH.
