COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Employees

Moderna developed COVID-19 vaccines will soon be available to MCS employees. Teachers and support personnel have been identified as members of target group 1B.  The Montgomery County Health Department has completed vaccinations for Phase 1A first responders. Phase 1B-1 is beginning now for residents 75 years and older. School employees aged 50+ will follow as group 1B-2. Thereafter, school employees under 50 as group 1B-3.  In order to attain the vaccine as soon as possible, all employees will need to complete the survey provided.
