PECOS, Texas — Nurses at Pecos Barstow Toyah ISD have received the COVID-19 vaccine.

The school district posted a picture of their nurses on Facebook on January 8.

As part of Texas' distribution of the vaccine, school nurses are included in Phase 1B as they are considered health care workers interacting with the public.

Nurses at school districts across West Texas should hopefully also be receiving the vaccine soon as children head back to campus after the winter break.
