Fairfax Co. Outpaces Region’s School Districts in Staff COVID Vaccinations; D.C. Lags Behind

The six largest school districts in the D.C. metropolitan area have various estimations on how many teachers and staff have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported none of the six school districts have mandated vaccinations but the District and Montgomery County are considering that.

The Fairfax County Public Schools reported 90% of its staff vaccinated, the highest estimate in the region, though officials ceded the exact number is unknown because teachers aren’t obligated to individually report their vaccination status, WTTG reported.

D.C. Public Schools has the lowest overall staff vaccination rate estimate at only 39%. A DCPS spokesperson told WTTG that 43% of the district’s 7,500 staff reported the information, and of those reporting, 93% were fully vaccinated.

Maryland’s Montgomery and Prince George’s counties both said that 60% of the staff at their public school systems have been vaccinated. Virginia’s Loudoun County Public Schools reported 71% and Arlington Public Schools had 53% of its staff vaccinated by March.

The six districts said their estimates may be higher because they don’t include people who got their shots on their own and not through the school systems.
