The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) released new COVID-19 guidance on Tuesday asking schools in the Bluegrass State to prepare for the COVID-19 vaccine.

The document, titled "COVID-19 Considerations for Reopening Schools: Preparing for COVID-19 Vaccinations”, says plans are in the works to distribute the vaccine to school and district personnel across the Commonwealth during the Spring 2021 semester.

In order to help the state health department plan for distribution, KDE is asking all districts to prepare rosters of employees who plan to take the vaccine. Should an employee choose not to be included on the initial vaccine roster and later decide that they want to take the vaccine, KDE says they'd be required to wait until the vaccine is available to the general public.

KDE says districts are asked to have their rosters ready for submission by Dec. 30, 2020.

The document released by KDE on Tuesday acknowledges that many specifics surrounding the distribution of the vaccine remain unknown and specifies that the guidance will is for planning purposes and will be updated if new information becomes available.
