Members of the Dorchester District 2 School Board want to make sure South Carolina teachers remain near the head of the line for vaccines in the coming weeks as proposals expedite vaccines for other at-risk groups.
A resolution was signed by DD2 officials Tuesday, directed at Gov. Henry McMaster and local legislators, according to The Post and Courier.
The calls from the Dorchester County district come as teacher advocates statewide raise questions about vaccine rollout.
