FORT WORTH, Texas — Fort Worth Independent School District Superintendent Kent P. Scribner announced Thursday afternoon that the District has partnered with Texas Health Resources to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to all Fort Worth ISD employees. This includes part-time and substitute employees.
Employees who have not yet received a vaccination have been invited to sign up through Fort Worth ISD. Then, Texas Health Resources will be in touch with registrants to schedule a time and place for the vaccination that works for them.
“You have all continued to serve our children and our community since this crisis began,” said Dr. Scribner. “And, we are grateful that we’ve been able to partner with Texas Health Resources to offer this opportunity.”
Texas Health, designated a vaccination hub for Tarrant County by the state of Texas, has been actively vaccinating North Texans through five community clinics designed specifically for the efficient, high through-put of patients and a series of mobile clinics to reach underserved populations. To date, the health system has provided more than 140,000 vaccinations.
“It is our privilege to work with the Fort Worth ISD to bring vaccines to these critical front-line workers in education,” said Texas Health CEO Barclay Berdan. “These vaccines are safe, effective and a great tool to help turn the tide on this pandemic.”
