About 1/5 of LA Unified employees have not been vaccinated
About 1 in 5 Los Angeles Unified School District employees have not yet gotten their first vaccine against Covid-19, according to the Los Angeles Times.
If employees are not fully vaccinated by Oct. 15, or show proof of religious or medical exemption, they could lose their jobs. The district is already struggling to fill more than 2,000 vacancies. There are currently 12,000 employees who are estimated to have not yet started their vaccination process.
Students 12 and older have until Oct. 3 to receive their first dose of vaccination or be forced into online classes.
