The first of two planned vaccine clinic sites exclusively for Boston Public Schools employees opened Sunday in Mattapan.
The clinic, located at the Boston Centers for Youth and Family Gallivan Community Center, is open to teachers, bus drivers, monitors, administrators and other contractors who work for Boston Public Schools.
Administrators at first plan to offer roughly 200 appointments per day, Sunday through Thursday, and will reopen to provide second shots after 21 days.

Sign-up for appointments is available on the district's website.
Operating hours for the clinic in Mattapan are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday and 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
Boston Public Schools is partnering with the Boston Teachers Union to open a second BPS-only vaccination site located at the BTU Hall in Dorchester when more vaccine doses become available.
It comes as the state marked the anniversary of the beginning of pandemic-related school closures and shutdowns last week. But also as we’ve been seeing some real headway being made with vaccinations resulting in lower case numbers.
