What to know before you go to our clinics

Georgia expanded access to available COVID-19 vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson) to include all teachers and school district employees, including substitutes and temporary employees. Cedarwood employees are also eligible.  Being vaccinated is a personal choice. The school district will not require you to be vaccinated as a condition of employment.  For more information about our clinics, required documents, or other local and area providers, visit this website.  Documents and forms are posted here and in Google Drive – District Office – COVID-19 – COVID-19 Vaccines.  

     Our three initial clinics will help more than 500 of our employees receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  Some employees have already been vaccinated at other local providers due to previous eligibility.

Step One for Employees: Review Vaccine Information

  • Decide whether or not you will get the vaccine. If you do want to get the vaccine, decide if you will participate in Bulloch County Schools’ clinics or get the vaccine at another local or area provider.
  • If you are already on a waiting list to receive a COVID-19 vaccine from another local or area provider, you may honor those appointments.  You do not have to participate in our clinics.
  • Bulloch County Schools initially has three dedicated clinics for our employees and Cedarwood employees only
    • March 12 and March 19, from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m., at the Bulloch County Health Department, located at 1 West Altman Street, in Statesboro. 
    • March 19, 9 - 11 a.m., at our 219 Simons Road facility in Statesboro. This clinic is for our Transportation Department employees only. 
  • The school district’s clinics will distribute the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine only. Please review the product fact sheet for this vaccine.  It is posted on this website, in employee's Google Drive, and it was shared with all employees by email.
  • Consult your primary care physician if necessary about getting the vaccine to ensure you can safely take the vaccine without interaction to any known allergies or medications.
  • Review all of the the specifics about the March 12 & March 19 clinics provided here.

Step Two for Employees: Make an Appointment

  • The link to our online appointment tool for the March 12 & March 19  Health Department clinics was emailed to all employees on March 8. The link is also posted in our employees' Google Drive - District Office - COVID-19 - COVID-19 Vaccine. For security, it will not be posted to this website. 
  • The appointment link requires an employee to enter an @bullochschools.org or @cedwarwoodgnets.org e-mail address.  If an employee does not know their e-mail address, they can check with their supervisor.
  • For the March 19 clinic at our Transportation & Technology Annex for Transportation employees, please contact Janet Tanner for a separate link to schedule appointment.
  • Employees who are currently on leave or who are quarantined may still participate in a clinic; however, do not schedule an appointment if you are in isolation with COVID-19 symptoms.
  • It is imperative that employees arrive on time. The refrigerated vials of vaccine are prepared and readied especially for an employee's arrival and must be used within a set period of time or risk being wasted.
  • If an employee is unable to schedule an appointment, the school district has tentatively scheduled a third clinic for March 26.  We will continue to work with local providers to schedule additional clinics based on employee demand.
  • In the event that an employee needs to cancel their scheduled appointment, please do so before 3 p.m. on the day prior to the appointment by contacting Carole Colson by email or by phone at 912.212.8622 or Janet Tanner  by email or phone at 912.212.8641 for Transportation Dept. clinic.  .

Step Three: What to Bring to My Appointment

  • For all clinics, bring the required COVID-19 Vaccine Consent Form completed and signed. The form is posted on this website, is available on our employees' Google Drive, and it was emailed to all employees. Supervisors may also provided printed copies for employees. 
  • Employees are required to bring their Bulloch County Schools identification badge to the appointment. For temporary employees and substitutes that do not have a permanent identification badge, they may bring a valid driver’s license or other form of picture identification.
  • Employees should bring their health insurance card. There is no charge for the vaccine; however, please bring it with you.

Step Four: What Should I Expect at My Appointment?

  • The Health Department clinics are drive-through only.  Employees will not leave their vehicles.
  • Employees should  be prepared to remain at least 15 minutes after their vaccine to be observed by medical personnel.
  • To aid medical personnel, consider wearing a short-sleeved shirt or clothing that can easily allow access to your upper arm to administer the vaccine.
