MILWAUKEE (January 12, 2021) — Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) nurses, school nurse associates, occupational and physical therapists, audiologists, speech and language pathologists, and children’s health assistants have been placed among the first group (1A) in Milwaukee to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

MPS health professionals are eligible for the vaccine through the same process now used by Milwaukee’s emergency medical responders and healthcare personnel.

“After discussion with our mayor and health officials, Milwaukee Public Schools is confident this plan is in the best interest of our students, families, and staff,” MPS Superintendent Dr. Keith P. Posley said. “It is imperative we support our health professionals who diligently serve our district. We will continue to advocate for our state and local government to accelerate the process and increase access to the COVID-19 vaccine.“

These vaccinations are underway with guidance from the City of Milwaukee Health Department.
