HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Wolf says teachers will receive doses of the newly approved one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, under a plan his administration will release.
In a news conference on a separate topic, Wolf said his administration’s plan will be released Wednesday. Wolf will detail the plan during a news conference at 11 a.m. Wednesday, which will stream live on WFMZ.com.
State officials expect 94,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to arrive this week. Education groups say vaccinating school staff is essential to reopen schools and keep them open.
The state is still in Phase 1A of its vaccine plan, offering the shots to people age 65 and over and younger people with high-risk medical conditions. That's about 4 million people.
