In February, Bay City Independent School District (BCISD) formalized agreements with Matagorda Episcopal Health Outreach Program (MEHOP) to provide COVID-19 vaccines to BCISD staff and board members. Through a separate vaccine request to the State of Texas, MEHOP has received vaccine allocation approval for BCISD.
BCISD’s vaccination clinic is scheduled for March 11th and will be held at MEHOP’s Emergency Response Center. “We are pleased with our continued ability to meet the health needs of our community," said Donna Huitt, MEHOP Marketing Director. "We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of keeping our students and teachers healthy and our schools open.”
"This is a great opportunity for our district to keep our staff safe and healthy," said Dr. Marshall Scott III, BCISD Superintendent of Schools. "Our teachers and staff have worked incredibly hard over the last year to deal with the restrictions of COVID-19, and we are grateful that the vaccine is now available to our educators. We would like to thank MEHOP for partnering with us in this endeavor."
The state of Texas has allocated 300 vaccines for BCISD’s vaccination clinic. Teachers and board members that would like to receive the vaccine are currently registering with MEHOP.
