Vaccine decision ‘a tremendous victory’ for students and educators

The federal government’s decision to grant school employees priority access to COVID-19 vaccines is a tremendous victory for students, educators and our communities.

Educators working through their unions and with our allies, including many parents, have been tireless in their advocacy to have Governor Charlie Baker acknowledge the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s classification of school employees as essential workers and begin the vaccination program now. President Biden heeded the call that our own governor, until today, did not or would not listen to.
