Still no set date for mass vaccinations for Coffee County school employees

Local News

COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — The Coffee County School System is still working on a plan to vaccinate its staff members, according to Superintendent Kevin Killingsworth.

However, Killingsworth said the delay in getting a set schedule is not because of a lack of planning or trying to get enough vaccine doses. Last week, the system reported that they were trying to secure enough vaccines for all its staff members that would want them.

Killingsworth also reported a significant drop in COVID-19 cases, with only six new ones reported this week.

The cases were reported across the following schools:

  • Zion Chapel School — three student cases
  • New Brockton Elementary School — one student case
  • New Brockton High School — one student case
  • Kinston School has one student case.

This brings the total number of COVID-19 cases to 193. Quarantines are also rapidly declining, according to Killingsworth.
