Anne Arundel County schools superintendent Mark Bedell rolled up the sleeves of his white t-shirt outside of the Parole Health Center in Annapolis Sept. 29 and pointed to his shoulders. “Can I get Moderna on the right and flu on the left,” he asked the licensed practical nurse administering his vaccines ahead of the winter season. “I have to do this, with all of the people I’m around.” Bedell is among many school officials around the region emphasizing the importance of vaccinations and continued vigilance against the COVID-19 virus this fall.
