No, the Cherokee County School District isn’t giving vaccines to students

In response to misinformation being spread throughout social media, the Cherokee County School District is making clear to parents that it is not administering vaccines to students.

The district responded to the social media rumors with a Facebook post of its own.

So that you can read the information straight from the horse’s mouth, the text of the school system’s response is provided below in its entirety.


“Please be advised that false rumors are deliberately being spread in our community about CCSD and COVID-19 vaccinations. CCSD is NOT holding ANY COVID-19 vaccination events for our students at our schools or elsewhere. CCSD is partnering with the Cherokee County Health Department to offer COVID-19 vaccination boosters to our employees, if they want to receive one, at the health department’s clinics on Friday, Nov. 19.

“More than 1,800 CCSD employees have requested an appointment, which is why that day is a Digital Learning Day for all students. CCSD does host annual flu vaccine clinics at schools for our employees, if they want to receive one, as we have for more than a decade.

“CCSD does NOT administer ANY vaccines to our students at our schools or elsewhere. It is deeply troubling that anyone in our community would deliberately spread misinformation and lies and even more upsetting that they appear to be doing so for political and/or personal financial gain.

“The comments are turned off on this post as we are not hosting a forum for debating the value of vaccines. That conversation is one for you to have with your doctor.”
