GEORGIA – According to the statement, teachers are down the vaccination schedule, because state leaders moved more older Georgians ahead of them. The change has angered educators.
Some have protested school reopening as COVID-19 has infected and even killed colleagues. According to the latest statistics, there are around a million people aged 65-74 in Georgia.
Gov. Kemp and his public health commissioner, Dr. Kathleen Toomey, moved them from the third inoculation phase to the first, leapfrogging teachers who remain in the second wave, known as “phase 1b.”
