HARRISBURG (CBS) — Pennsylvania hopes to have all eligible school staff vaccinated within a few weeks. So far, about 6,500 individuals have been vaccinated at 20 clinics.
“The education initiative we’re hopeful that we’ll be able to finish that up by the end of March. However, that is going to be predicated on the amount of doses that we receive and again that is not set in stone as of yet and those dates are not set in stone,” said PEMA Director Randy Padfield.READ MORE: Tolls Increasing Sunday On 8 Delaware River Crossings Connecting Pennsylvania, New Jersey
