United Independent School District (UISD), continues to work with the City of Laredo and Health Department officials to administer the COVID-19 vaccine. As part of a city-wide vaccination effort on Friday, February 26, 2021, UISD nurses administered a total of 1200 first dose inoculations at six UISD campus locations throughout the district. An additional 120 volunteers provided assistance to the nursing staff and visitors at the Lyndon B. Johnson High School 9th Grade Campus, United South High School 9th Grade Campus, Lamar Bruni Vergara Middle School, the United Middle School 6th Grade Campus, Washington Middle School, and United High School.
Individuals who received their first dose of the COVID -19 vaccine on Friday, February 26 can expect to receive their second dose vaccine on or around March 26, 2021. United ISD will announce its locations for second-dose vaccines when a date has been confirmed. Individuals seeking to receive COVID-19 vaccinations must register at www.vaccinatelaredo.com. or call 3-1-1, where calls will be transferred to the vaccine hotline.
United ISD appreciates all of its volunteers from our different departments for coordinating, distributing and administering this essential vaccine to our campus sites. Our shipping and receiving personnel have also worked closely with our sites to ensure that all vaccination stations are properly supplied. Our nurses and volunteers have worked diligently to ensure that every step of the vaccination process runs smoothly for the community. The United ISD Board of Trustees, Superintendent Roberto J. Santos, employees, volunteers, and our nurses thank the community for recognizing the district’s efforts to help our beloved city regain its well-being.
