In what has been an unprecedented school year, the Mineola Union Free School District is continuing to do its part to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in its buildings and community. Mineola is the first district to partner with NYU Langone in an effort to get the whole staff vaccinated against COVID-19.

So far, more than 540 district employees have signed up to receive a vaccine, totaling 90 percent of the staff. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Nagler received his on Thursday, Jan. 14.

“I am extremely thankful to NYU Langone for arranging to get our entire staff vaccinated so quickly, it will allow us to return to some type of normalcy faster than we anticipated,” said Nagler.
