February 25 Update: More appointments for Wave 4 open at noon today

  • Dear Colleagues,

    Today at noon, additional COVID-19 vaccination appointments for PPS employees and PPS community partner staff eligible for Wave 4 will be released.

    As a reminder, only student-facing staff are eligible to receive a vaccination at this time. Staff who do not have contact with students as part of their normal course of work do not qualify for Wave 4 vaccines under new OHA instruction. The OHA scheduling system was updated this week to reflect this shift in the Wave 4 eligibility.

    Wave 4 includes teachers, support staff, specialists and administration of 9th grade – 12th grade; substitutes of all grade levels, athletic coaches, and other student-facing district and community partner staff.

    You can find updated information about all Waves by clicking here. There are still appointments available for employees and community partner staff in all Waves.

    Please follow these instructions (English | Español) to schedule your appointment. 

    All updates and other vaccination resource information can be found on the PPS vaccines webpage.

    Thank you,

    Sharon Reese
    Chief Human Resources Officer
