Barren County School District offering Covid-19 vaccine and testing for students and staff

GLASGOW, Ky. – A local school district has a resource available to help fight the covid-19 pandemic.

The Healthy Kids Clinic part of Cumberland Family Medical Center INC. will continue to have the vaccine and Covid testing available to Barren County School District staff and students at each campus.

There is also an offsite clinic at the Hillcrest Annex on Roseville Road for anyone to participate in. At the clinic offered previously, over 150 people from the community came to be tested and vaccinated.

Barren County Schools director of special programs Cynthia York says it’s encouraging to see these resources being used.

“Especially the services that are provided at each of our schools to our students and staff, that immediate testing and that opportunity to be vaccinated there on site, we have seen numbers increase with those who are being tested as a result of that service being offered at each one of our schools,” York said.

Students getting vaccinated must be 12 years or older. To schedule a vaccine dose, call the nurse of your child’s school.
