We SHARED INFORMATION regarding a cov vax clinic for school staff done back in March, which ANTELOPE VALLEY HOSPITAL made available to ALL public and private schools’ staff in our AV Area. We helped in registering our staff, but made abundantly clear was simply Helping Staff to get registered with the Hospital and that utilizing the clinic option was a completely voluntary action, and in NO WAY a district requirement. We also had a lot of staff that ASKED for info as soon as the CA Tier opened up for School Employees. We also regularly email all Staff ‘Just Info Sharing’ regarding Other cov vaccine clinics and updates available in our area by either the County or local Cities.

Talk with your district’s legal representation AND WC Carrier as “directly or actively encouraging staff or requiring staff” to be vaccinated is not recommended by most HR legal sources and WORKERS COMP carriers. Your WC Carrier will surely have input.

State agencies and large Counties, that have started requiring cov vaccines for their staff likely have VAST wc & liability coverage, and different operational goals, then a Self Insured school district.
