Fox 4: Kansas City hospitals begin push to vaccinate Missouri teachers

By John Pepitone

Vaccinators from Truman Medical Centers and Children’s Mercy Hospital say they’ll be busy inoculating Missouri teachers for the next six weeks.

About 500 Kansas City Public Schools teachers received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at the Manual Career Tech Center as some also returned to the classrooms Monday.

KCPS Superintendent Mark Bedell said he expects full time, in-person education will return sometime in May.

About 95% of Missouri schools already are operating with some form of in-person classes.
