Educators To Start Receiving Vaccinations Within the Next Six Weeks

The Union of Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers welcomes the news  that educators, and members of staff working in schools, will start being invited to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in around 6 weeks’ time, immediately after the vulnerable portion of the population, as confirmed by Hon. Dr. Chris Fearne in a press conference held on Tuesday, the 9th of February 2021.

The UPE hopes that the pattern of vaccinations held to date will be upheld even when it comes to educators, with older educators receiving their invitation first and then progressing towards the younger age groups as the rollout proceeds.

The union is looking forward to seeing educators, who are willing to accept the invitation, finally receive this long awaited the vaccine which should eventually pave the way towards the end of a pandemic which has affected us all so direly.
