JCPS vaccinates hundreds of students during COVID-19 blitz weekend

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Bryce Malone was a little nervous Saturday morning.

Bryce and his mother Jannetta White were among the first to arrive at Carter Traditional Elementary to get the 9-year-old his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

To help ease the nerves, the Kerrick Elementary student chose a Superman mask for today “because he’s brave”.

More children and their families joined them as the clinic officially opened at 10am. Some joked with a cast of mascots on hand to keep the mood light. A few picked up one of the free coloring pages intended as a distraction tool.

One by one, they sat down at tables in Carter’s cafeteria to get an opportunity that families had been waiting for months.
