'Education should take precedence over vaccines'
Prioritize education personnel as soon as a corona vaccine is available. That asks the AOb today in a letter to Education Ministers Ingrid van Engelshoven and Arie Slob. Anyone who wants to must be able to be vaccinated.
'It is very important that education can return as quickly as possible to a situation that is as normal as possible, in which physical education is provided and lesson drop-outs are kept to a minimum', writes AObChairman Eugenie Stolk to ministers. 'We therefore argue in favor of giving education staff priority when using a vaccine.'
A vaccine should never become mandatory, but should be made available as a priority to those in education who want to receive it. “Teachers have to keep working under complicated circumstances. If you ask them to, it makes sense that they are given priority in vaccinations, ”Stolk explains.
Earlier, the AOb already has priority over the test street and then priority at the rapid tests. "We hope that you will include this point in your discussions with the cabinet and that you stand for safe and high-quality education," Stolk concludes her most recent appeal to the ministers.
