Dallas Independent School District plans to vaccinate teachers and staff.

Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa received his first dose at the district’s Ellis Davis Field House in southern Dallas Monday.

Dallas ISD has over 22,000 employees and about 3,000 have been vaccinated.

Parkland Health will hold about 9,000 COVID-19 vaccines for Dallas ISD employees.

Hinojosa said, "This is a game-changer. I want everybody to be back in August in school and in person. And if we can all do this between now and then I think we can get back to somewhat normal in August."

The timing of the vaccinations has not been received yet, it all depends on when Parkland receives them and can arrange for vaccine clinics.

The district is still working on plans to vaccinate the remaining staff members who want to get a shot.
