Medical students at the Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership will begin helping administer the COVID-19 vaccine this week through an arrangement with the Clarke County Board of Health.
The medical students will be working at the Department of Public Health COVID-19 testing sites administering the vaccines, monitoring patients for vaccine reactions, and recruiting patients for vaccines.
The Clarke County School District has announced that they expect all students will return to in-person instruction in mid-February using a phased-in approach.
The students will return to school using a hybrid model of being in-person for 1-2 days per week, while the rest of the week will remain virtual. In addition, only certain groups will return on certain days, with the groups broken up by elementary school, middle school, high school, and special ed.
More details are expected to be provided next week.
