Board of Deputies Vice President calls for school staff to be vaccinated
Board of Deputies Vice President Edwin Shuker has called for teachers to be prioritised for vaccinations against Coronavirus.
He said: “With many schools already told to close at the start of term, and with many more likely to follow, the challenges facing those in education are substantial. In order to safeguard those who have worked tirelessly since the start of the pandemic to keep the education sector working, it is clear that school staff, including teachers and other workers, should be prioritised in relation to vaccinations. In time, this will ensure that the opening of schools can be made as swift as possible as well as making the working environment for school staff significantly safer.”
