Some Lawrence staff , identified as NYS group 1A , have started to get the vaccine. This is very good news and we anxiously await vaccines being made available to our teachers, staff, children, and families. I’m pretty certain we all want one of these “ proof of COVID vaccination cards”.
Lawrence’s first vaccination! Nurse Susan Brooks from Lawrence Middle School proudly displays her vaccination band-aid and says “ We can do this America!” Today the county opened up vaccination for school nurses. We are delighted to see this process begin.
