Officials with Henderson County Schools (HCS) say the district is partnering with Wal-Mart Pharmacy to vaccinate its employees soon.

According to an announcement made Monday, district employees will have the chance to receive the Moderna vaccine as soon as Wednesday, Feb. 3.

According to HCS, Wednesday's clinic will be the first of 11 clinics that will be held for district employees, providing multiple opportunities for them to receive the vaccine.

HCS says all employees receiving the vaccine are doing so voluntarily.

The Bluegrass State is now in Phase 1B of its vaccination plan, meaning anyone age 70 and above, K-12 school personnel, and all individuals made eligible under the previous phases can receive the vaccine.
