ST. LOUIS – School districts across the St. Louis area are eagerly awaiting their turn to receive the COVID vaccines.

Dr. Kelvin Adams, the superintendent of the St. Louis Public School District, says he’s still waiting for more information but hopes to get the recordings done for staff this spring.

Adams says he has no plans to make the vaccines mandatory, although he plans to take the vaccine himself.

The district is mostly black. A high percentage of minorities are skeptical of the shot, so the superintendent has to overcome a high bar to get out of this crisis.

According to Adams, the district is working with a health care provider to provide the vaccinations.

Currently the district has virtual and face-to-face training.
