Madison Central School District personnel interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine could receive it sometime in February.  Superintendent Joel Jorgenson explained to school board members during their Monday meeting that K-thru-12 school employees are in group 1-D of the state Department of Health’s groups of those to receive the vaccine.  

Jorgenson said that they don’t know for sure yet how the administration of the vaccine will work.

Jorgenson said that Madison Regional Health will be coordinating the distribution of the vaccine to school personnel. 

The state Department of Health said that they are currently working on getting vaccine administered to those included in group C of the first phase.  Along with teachers and other K-thru-12 employees, others included in group D are people with two or more underlying medical conditions, people aged 65 years and older, residents in congregate settings, and funeral service workers. 

Currently more than 38-thousand people in the state have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
