Teachers, The Next Round Of Vaccines Are For You
Nobody really likes the idea of getting a shot. But that was back then and well.....this is now. We are still not crazy about needles but more and more people are posting about getting their vaccine. It's better to get the unpleasantness out of the way, right?
When Covid reared its ugly head about last year, we couldn't wait to get a vaccine developed. Sure enough, here we are a year later with several of them. We have had our first few phases of people going going to get their vaccinations as they are made eligible. Now that Gov. Abbott has re-opened Texas at 100% capacity starting next week.... here we sit. Waiting to see how quickly we can get everyone vaccinated and taken care of.
The first group of individuals allowed to receive the vaccine were our front-line healthcare workers, staff and residents of long-term care facilities.
Next, they were opened up to those that were over 65 years old or people over 18 who have at least one chronic medical condition that put them in a high risk for Covid-19.
The news came out yesterday that once again they have opened it up to yet another group of candidates to go get vaccinated: teachers. I have already seen a bunch of very happy friends on Facebook.
I saw this announcement on the City of Amarillo's Facebook page:
Teachers are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine!
This includes those who work in pre-primary, primary, and secondary schools, as well as Head Start and Early Head Start programs (including teachers, staff, and bus drivers) and those who work as or for licensed child care providers, including center-based and family care providers.
