PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — Teachers and other education workers can now get a coronavirus vaccine under an executive order from President Joe Biden.

The vaccines can be obtained via Walmart, CVS, Publix, and other providers who are participating in the federal distribution program.

The new rule is part of a push by the Biden administration to get schools open.

This is not part of the state distribution and those eligible will only be able to get vaccines from the participating pharmacies.
