SARATOGA SPRINGS —Three hundred teachers were vaccinated against COVID-19 in Saratoga last week at a group clinic set-up by Saratoga County Public Health and WSWHE BOCES.
Each of the schools in this group; Shenendehowa, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Mechanicville, Ballston Spa, South Glens Falls, Galway, Corinth, Edinburgh, Saratoga Springs, and WSWHE BOCES were allowed to have 30 educators vaccinated.
This was the second round of vaccinations for these districts. In the first round, each school sent 15 teachers. Those teachers will get their second dose of the vaccine on Feb. 26.
The vaccines were administered by the school nurses from each school, who were given a four-hour training by the Saratoga County Department of Health.
