COVID-19 Vaccine

Truman Medical Center COVID-19 Vaccine information


Truman Medical Center is partnering with KCPS to administer the new COVID-19 vaccine for KCPS employees. Public health officials have placed a high priority on getting educators and school district staff vaccinated in order to accelerate a return to normal for schools. We will be gathering input from our employees and developing a vaccine schedule for any employee who wants to receive the vaccine. 

From the very beginning of this pandemic, our policy has been to make decisions based on science and data. We will continue to follow that policy. That means doing everything possible to maximize the health and wellness of students, families, staff and visitors as we return to in-person teaching and learning.
