ahh. In that case. I take it back and blame Alan Harper’s tash !
That is disappointing with schools opening soon, surely teachers are priority for vaccination.I work as a Pastoral manager at a school and I can honestly say that it is highly unlikely that most of the staff will have had the vaccine before the opening of schools.
Difference is this time schools are operating around 50% capacity already. Teachers are in school teaching classes every day since January. Our school has 330 pupils, first lockdown there were 30 kids in, this time 176 are in. This isn’t untypical. So getting the rest in shouldn’t cause huge spikes like it did in September. Plus by Mar 8th we’ll have vaccines done for around 23 million (virtually every body over 60 and those at most risk).Apologies. It’s 3.8 weeks of schooling before Easter.
In the grand scheme of things, I do feel that opening up for 19 days will set us back more than the kids would suffer.
I do understand it’s a tough decision and their are positives and negatives, but we’re nearly there.
One last effort to get beyond Easter and millions more vaccines will save countless lives.
I don't have kids but surely it's a no brainer for the gov, to put families mind at rest that teachers are at least vaccinated.Unfortunately not. Personally I think they should be prioritised but doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
