COVID-19 vaccination of public school teachers and personnel may start in June
COVID-19 vaccination of public school teachers and personnel, served as “frontline personnel in basic education and higher education institutions and agencies” may start by June, Secretary Leonor Briones said.
Teachers have moved up in the COVID-19 priority list from B1 category to A4 category.
“Siguro mga June ito mag-umpisa kasi by that time mag-start na ng enrollment, marami nang activities sa eskwelahan at saka kailangan protektado ang mga teachers,” Briones said.
Briones said teachers may no longer register for vaccination since the government already has a list.
“Napakalaking jump nito para sa mga teachers, magandang magandang balita para sa lahat. Matagal na namin itong kinakausap at kinakampanya para masama ang teachers sa mauna na mabakunahan sa A-list at galing sa B,” Briones added.
Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) announced last week that teachers have been included in the A4 category, which is next in line for vaccination.
