Faculty of the Sherrard School District received the second round of the Moderna brand COVID-19 vaccine on Friday.
The Mercer County Health Department set up a seven-station clinic throughout Sherrard High School’s gym.
According to the school district, a few people were sent in at a time and seated at socially distant chairs set out at each station.
Superintendent Alan Boucher says the health department administered the vaccine to 75% of faculty and school volunteers.
“The coronavirus has dominated our thoughts and actions for almost a year. Seeing the Sherrard staff receive the second dose of the vaccine today was heartening, and I am hopeful it will hasten the pandemic’s demise,” said Boucher on Friday.
Boucher adds the health department’s on-site clinic was organized, industrious and the workers were friendly.
“It is a perfect illustration of community organizations working together for the common good,” said Boucher.
