BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — Rosedale Union educators and school staff have been halfway vaccinated against the coronavirus and are looking forward to their second doses.
A vaccination clinic was held in partnership with Priority Urgent Care. The Rosedale Union School District is one that has been open since September with a few closures along the way due to too many cases and not enough substitutes.
One educator is saying being vaccinated helps give her some peace of mind.
"I think definitely we still have a little bit of road to go but just seeing the turnout here today, you know I think I'm seeing a little bit of a light at the end of the tunnel," said Stephanie Rubio, a special ed program facilitator. "You know it gives us that confidence to be able to go in and do our job and not have to worry about that part of the pandemic."
In six weeks they will hold another clinic to give the second dose of the vaccine to all of the staff that got the first dose Tuesday.
