It’s a bit of a mystery why there has been so much fretting and differences of opinion over giving the vaccine to teachers. Why wouldn’t teachers be on the 1A list? While they may not be working in ERs or ICUs, they are still potentially exposed on a regular basis in those places that are meeting in person. There may be procedures and protocols and precautions that appear to be working in various districts, the stats indicate a low transmission rate when these precautions are followed, but no system is perfect. Why depend on something with so many moving parts when a simple shot or two in the arm will go a long way to quieting the resistance?
The cries are for children to get out of the house and back into the classroom. Well, meet the teacher demand for vaccination, then proceed accordingly. It’s a no-brainer.
