"From the moment vaccinations were first available, Glendale Unified has worked diligently with our healthcare partners to provide vaccination opportunities for employees, students, and families," Glendale Unified Superintendent Dr. Vivian Ekchian said in a statement. "I am incredibly proud of our District's continued commitment and efforts to vaccinate our community, which have resulted in an already high vaccination rate among our employees."

Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Unified School District announced that all its teachers and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 15.
