NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Nashville officials will soon launch a plan to vaccinate teachers and child care workers.

However, Metro educators won’t be fully immunized until well after the city’s children are back in their classrooms.

Nashville Mayor John Cooper and Metro Nashville Public Schools Director Dr. Adrienne Battle announced the plan Monday. Vaccinations will begin on Feb. 20.

Vanderbilt Medical Center has agreed to inoculate public school teachers. Tri-Star hospitals will vaccinate private school teachers and child care workers.

MNPS expects to have all grades back in school by March 3, but the earliest any teacher could be fully immunized would be more than two weeks later.
