The gymnasium of the Bergen County Technical High School served as a vaccine clinic last Saturday, helping several hundred educators receive their dose in the span of one day, Patch.com reports

Over 700 Bergen County school teachers and faculty received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine in a Paramus clinic, the source continues.

The site is scheduled to open back up this weekend as well. 

These efforts are done with the hopes of a full — and safe — return to in-person learning. 

Bergen County Commissioners Chairman Steve Tanelli reiterated how important this step is to the county’s end goal. 

“Making sure that Bergen County educators, school staff, and students are able to return to school in a safe and efficient manner is a top priority,” Tanelli said according to Patch.com. 

The hopes to return to fully in-person classes stays alive in many educators’ hearts, from primary school teachers to professors of higher education. This is indeed a stride forward to manifest this goal into reality soon.
