Killeen ISD released the numbers after day one of the joint effort to provide COVID-19 vaccines to children, and the Bell County community.

The school district's partnership, with the City of Killeen, Bell County Health District, Bell County, and the Texas Military Department allows anyone 5 and older to receive a free Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The first day of the endeavor resulted in the vaccination of 266 children, with 429 total vaccinations.

"KISD remains dedicated to mitigating the spread of COVID-19," said the school district. "The district does not require staff or students to receive the COVID-19 vaccine."
