COVID-19 Vaccinations for Staff & Volunteers
Governor Inslee has announced a directive requiring all employees and volunteers of public and private K–12 school districts to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by October 18, 2021.
As noted by Washington Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal and Governor Inslee, “this order should not delay or impact our return to full-time, in-person learning this fall. Employees who are not yet vaccinated will have time to do so while still working and serving students. In addition, the order is specific to school employees and is not related to the vaccination of students.”
According to the directive:
- All school employees and volunteers must be fully vaccinated by October 18, 2021. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated once it has been 14 days since their last dose of Pfizer or Moderna or 14 days since their only dose of Janssen/Johnson & Johnson.
- All employees and volunteers must be fully vaccinated or have obtained a medical or religious exemption by October 18, 2021 as a qualification of fitness for continued employment.
