So schools are set to reopen on Friday, even though teachers under the age of 40 are still not eligible for Covid-19 vaccines. Love this total indifference for the lives and wellbeing of teachers 🙄
And while I’m at it, a complaint I’ve made before but still rankles: the sheer difficulty of trying to work out whether specific disabilities or medical conditions make you fit the government’s criteria of “people with disabilities or underlying medical conditions”. I think I qualify as a person with “chronic lung disease” except they haven’t put up an exhaustive list of which lung diseases count, just that asthma doesn’t. Look, as a substitute teacher with an underlying medical condition I just want to get vaccinated, alright?!
