DuBois, PA – DuBois School District originally had plans for making it easier for teachers to get vaccinated when their time came, but it looks like that could still be a while before it happens.

Superintendent Wendy Benton said they had originally planned to hold a vaccine clinic on-site at the school for teachers and staff who wanted the vaccine once they were eligible for it.

However, with a the inadequate supply of vaccine doses coming into our state right now and the expanded eligibility for vaccinating older citizens and those with illnesses before teachers and education staff, it will likely be a while until we see any kind of clinic like that.

Benton says although they had originally planned to team up with Penn Highlands for a vaccine clinic, now that the hospital is focusing on just the 75 plus age group for right now, the school will likely eventually look to partner with a pharmacy to provide the vaccines.

Wendy Benton, superintendent of the DuBois Area School District, talks about plans (and adjustments to the original plan) to hold a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the school.
