Misinformation About CCSD and COVID-19 Vaccines
Please be advised that false rumors are deliberately being spread in our community about CCSD and COVID-19 vaccinations. CCSD is NOT holding ANY COVID-19 vaccination events for our students at our schools or elsewhere. CCSD is partnering with the Cherokee County Health Department to offer COVID-19 vaccination boosters to our employees, if they want to receive one, at the health department’s clinics on Friday, Nov. 19. More than 1,800 CCSD employees have requested an appointment, which is why that day is a Digital Learning Day for all students. CCSD does host annual flu vaccine clinics at schools for our employees, if they want to receive one, as we have for more than a decade. CCSD does NOT administer ANY vaccines to our students at our schools or elsewhere. It is deeply troubling that anyone in our community would deliberately spread misinformation and lies and even more upsetting that they appear to be doing so for political and/or personal financial gain. The comments are turned off on this post as we are not hosting a forum for debating the value of vaccines. That conversation is one for you to have with your doctor.
The Fact vs. Fiction webpage at https://bit.ly/CCSDfacts is a place where you can find accurate information that dispels rumors and/or misinformation circulating in the community in a timely manner. This is an expansion of CCSD’s long-standing commitment to transparency and accountability and a part of our nationally recognized Open CCSD transparency project and webpage.
