Wausau school district staff begins vaccination process
For the Wausau Times
WAUSAU – The Wausau school district staff began scheduling COVID vaccination appointments on March 10.
“As of today, March 10, the Wausau School District has received word that our staff can begin scheduling appointments with Aspirus to get vaccinated against COVID-19. For various reasons, those vaccinations need to be given off-site at Aspirus,” a school district release stated.
“Because we are a large school district, we have tiered guidelines in place for scheduling so that we don’t crash the Aspirus phone system. The tiered guidelines were determined, in part, by the number of student positive cases in each of our grade levels this school year.”
High school staff was able to start calling on March 10; middle school staff on March 15, elementary staff on March 17; and district level building and staff on March 19.
Round No. 1 vaccine distribution is anticipated to be spread out over the next three weeks.
