AKRON, Ohio — Akron Public Schools say they aren't getting enough vaccines for all staff.

The district said they were notified that they will receive 780 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine next week.

They said they need 3,000 doses for the first dose to be given, which they are currently 2,200 short. They will need 6,000 for both rounds.

The district hopes that more doses will arrive after the first delivery so that all teachers and staff can get vaccinated as quickly as possible.
