AUGUSTA — The Maine Department of Health and Human Services, in partnership with the Maine Department of Education (DOE), updated its COVID-19 vaccination rates for school staff.
79.7 percent of Maine school staff statewide were fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as of Oct. 20, while 70.7 of central operations staff were fully vaccinated.
DHHS and DOE will post updated school staff vaccination rates monthly by the middle of each month. The rates include school staff who were fully vaccinated as of the last day of the previous month as submitted by schools between the first and tenth of each month.
The first chart below showcases vaccinated school staff by school. School staff is defined as individuals who are employed on a contracted, temporary, full- or part-time basis, and are primarily assigned to a single building.
The second chart below showcases central operations staff, which is defined as individuals who are employed on a contracted, temporary, full- or part-time basis, and are itinerant (travel among schools or student populations) or school entity-wide, (e.g. bus drivers, central office staff, shared service providers.)
Schools or districts marked by N/A indicates that the school entity has fewer than five staff in total or the school entity did not report data. School entities that did not submit data will have an opportunity to submit missing data the following month and the dashboard will be updated to reflect these data. Schools with fewer than five staff in total are not reflected in the dashboard to protect privacy.
Individual staff who did not respond to their respective school’s request for vaccination status are reported as unvaccinated.
