At least 96% of Aurora Public School staff have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus after the district required them to receive COVID-19 shots this summer, Superintendent Rico Mun said on Wednesday. .

Aurora Public Schools mandated vaccines after federal regulators fully approved Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 shot in August, making it one of the only school districts in Colorado to have such a requirement .

“It’s become clear as we go through this COVID crisis that we have to do everything we can to protect that person’s learning environment,” Munn said during a news conference with Gov. Jared Police.

He did not know how many total employees were fully immunized, adding that the number is expected to rise as some staff members have been at least partially vaccinated. Some employees have medical or religious exemptions.

The deadline for employees to comply with the mandate is Thursday, Munn said.

The district has about 38,000 students and about 6,000 employees.

Denver public school employees are also required to be vaccinated against the virus, but under a city order. DPS superintendent Alex Marrero said last week that 87 percent of the district’s staff were fully vaccinated and another 3% were exempt.
