The COVID-19 vaccine has been administered to teachers and staff at the public schools in the parish. Vaccinations were given at both Red River High and Red River Elementary on Wednesday.
Katie Bethard coordinated the program for the school board. She said, “It was the Moderna vaccine. Christus Coushatta provided the vaccines and our school nurses administered the vaccine to 65 employees. Also, Kassie Bethard and another nurse from Christus came and drew up the vaccines and helped with administration.
The team of school nurses and staff giving the inoculations at Red River High were Kelli Crow, Kassie Williams, Shanica Keith, Katie Bethard, Lauren Hillman, Ginny Hines, and Paula Clark.
