COVID-19 Vaccines

On January 5, 2021, Stanly County Schools was notified by the Stanly County Health Department that Moderna COVID-19 vaccines would be available to SCS employees who would like to receive the vaccine as early as next week.  School employees are categorized in Phase 1B of the COVID-19 Vaccination Plan. School employees age 50+ will be given the first opportunity to receive the vaccination. School employees under the age of 50 will be scheduled afterward.   

In order to develop our delivery plan, all employees will need to complete a mandatory survey which has been sent to all employees' SCS email account.  Responses to the survey will be used to begin scheduling vaccination appointments for those wishing to receive the vaccine.
