Petition Prioritise teachers, school and childcare staff for COVID-19 vaccination
Due to many children who contract COVID-19 being asymptomatic, the spread in schools is often unnoticed until a staff member develops symptoms.
NHS staff will be vaccinated as they risk their lives. School and childcare staff are also risking their lives but are not prioritised for a vaccine.
- more than 2,120 members of school staff have tested positive for COVID-19.
- more than 3,030 pupils have tested positive for COVID-19.
- more than 1,570 schools have reported at least one case of coronavirus.
