I personally work as a one-on-one instructional aide for two special ed kids. This means I HAVE to be in constant close contact with the kids, including helping them take their masks on and off. If teachers, special educators, aides, etc are being asked to be in person with their students during a pandemic and we have workers who have to be in very close, constant contact with kids who may not have a sense of hygiene, then why aren't school staff being vaccinated? Because I'm 23, I won't be able to get the vaccine for a long time if it's simply given out by age, but that whole time I'm waiting, I will still have to be doing my job in close contact with kids.

I’m signing this because I care about a teacher in Vermont. Teachers, school staff, and child care providers in my county in California were considered essential and were vaccinated after medical personnel and before those 65 and over. This only makes sense if we are going to insist that they teach in person in their classrooms. All teachers want to get back to the classroom, all of them should be protected.

I'm signing because I am a teacher in a school where already there have been 12 Covid cases. I also have a compromised immune system. Teachers need to be vaccinated now!
