A voluntary survey of school district employees found that, at the time of the survey, 79% had received, or planned to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
The survey was open for over a week and closed Wednesday, March 24. Over 1,100 district employees completed the survey in that time. The full COVID-19 Vaccination Survey results are available.
A few highlights are:
51% who responded were FEA, 35% ESSA, 8% non-represented, 3% FPA, and 4% temporary/substitute employees.
79% responded that they had or planned to receive a vaccine. Of those 79%, 96% had already received the first dose of the vaccine at the time of the survey.
FPA staff were the highest adopters of the vaccine, with 94% vaccinated or planning to vaccinate, followed by FEA (86%), non-represented (78%), ESSA (71%), and temporary/substitute staff (65%).
The 15% of staff who indicated they were not going to receive the vaccine and the 6% who were undecided said concerns that the vaccine was unsafe (48%) was the largest factor influencing their decision, followed by feeling that the vaccine is unnecessary (38%) and those who have a medical condition that does not allow them to receive the vaccine (11%).
