Governor Charlie Baker will talk about COVID-19 vaccination on Wednesday morning as President Joe Biden adds a teacher to the vaccine priority list.
Biden announced on Tuesday that it would like all teachers, staff and child care providers to be vaccinated in pharmacies starting next week. The CVS website already lists qualified kindergarten to high school teachers and staff in Massachusetts.
Baker will be announcing at 9am at Gloucester’s West Parish School, which is celebrating 101.st Face-to-face learning day.
According to the federal government, teachers, school staff, and nursery teachers must be vaccinated with the coronavirus vaccine at least once by the end of March.
“This is huge,” said Mary Najimy, president of the Massachusetts Teachers Association. “This will bring great joy to all school employees.”
