Nashville to Begin Scheduling Vaccines for EducatorsA Tennessean article, co-written by Yihyun Jeong and Meghan Mangrum titled "Nashville to Begin Scheduling Vaccines for Teachers, School Staff This Week" reported that city and school leaders announced that Nashville would begin scheduling vaccines for teachers and childcare workers.

During the news conference, Mayor John Cooper and Dr. Alex Jahangir, the city's COVID-19 taskforce chair, joined Metro Nashville Public Schools Director Adrienne Battle and announced that the city would move to Phase 1B of its vaccine distribution plan. The announcement came just before Metro Nashville Public Schools students from grades pre-K to 4 and students with special needs were set to return for in-person learning.

In preparation for returning to schools in person, Nashville teachers traveled across the state to receive their coronavirus vaccine. Vanderbilt University Medical Center will conduct the scheduling and vaccination of MNPS teachers and staff and charter school employees. In contrast, employees at private schools, parochial schools, and daycare centers will be taken care of by TriStar Health.

Metro School teachers are expected to begin receiving their first doses by the end of the month. Nashville received 11,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine the first week of February, which was an increased amount compared to previous weeks, according to Dr. Jahangir.

Metro Schools students and teachers will be returning in-person on a staggered basis, allowing educators to stagger as well when they receive their vaccine. 5th and 9th graders will be returning on February 18th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders return on February 25th, with high school students set to return on March 3rd.
