More than 90% of Connecticut's K-12 school employees are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the governor's office announced Monday.
In a survey conducted by the state Department of Education, 93% of public and private K-12 school employees reported were fully vaccinated.
No public school district had less than 80% of employees who were fully vaccinated.
In 73 of the 163 public school districts, the fully vaccination rate exceeds 95%, the governor's office reported.
“We appreciate all of our Connecticut educators, administrators, and staff members for taking proactive public-health measures so we can focus on keeping students in the classroom where we know they learn best,” Connecticut Education Commissioner Charlene Russell-Tucker said in a statement. “This is a meaningful step in the right direction to focus on accelerating learning and supporting our students and school staff as we emerge from this pandemic.”
