Broward County Public Schools announced it is working with the state's department of health to begin scheduling appointments for employees eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Superintendent Robert Runcie made the announcement Wednesday as Gov. Ron DeSantis expanded the eligibility list for COVID-19 vaccines to include teachers over age 50.
All K-12 employees ages 50 and older, including those in the district's charter schools, are eligible to get the vaccine.
"There is no longer a requirement for an individual to have an underlying medical condition to receive the vaccine," Superintendent Robert Runcie said in a video message.
