Roll Hill Elementary School principal Vicky Graves-Hill joined other Cincinnati Public Schools staff to receive her COVID-19 vaccine at the Duke Energy Convention Center on Saturday. “This vaccine gives me a sense of security,” said the 20-year-old veteran administrator. For Graves-Hill and these other Cincinnati Public Schools teachers and staff, acquiring this COVID-19 vaccine is a huge step in helping students learn in person again. “Our young people have missed a lot. They missed the opportunity to build relationships with their friends. You missed a great education. They missed their teachers, ”said Graves-Hill. Four hundred employees were vaccinated by Cincinnati Health Department employees on both Thursday and Friday. Around 1,200 more rolled up their sleeves in the convention center today. Virginia Scott of the Cincinnati Health Department acknowledges the impact of the work she and her staff have taken on over the past 10 months. “It is very important to get our teachers back. It is also important that our babies get back to school so they don’t miss anything. We just can’t miss this gap, ”said Scott. The extensive rollout focused on primary school staff and reflected the return of K-3 primary school to face-to-face learning over the next week. Secondary school workers will see similar major events over the coming week. For the two-dose vaccine, a second shot must be given within 21 days. But educators like Graves-Hill say today marks a long-awaited beginning: “I’m very excited because I know they’ll be happy to come back. Our teachers love to come back, “said Graves-Hill.” I miss her. We haven’t had that since last March. ”
