Alice Zammit started this petition to The Federal Government of Australia

Along with COVID-19 frontline, healthcare and aged care workers; I am starting this petition to ask the Federal Government of Australia to also prioritise in the first round of COVID-19 vaccinations all those who work in educational and child care institutions around Australia. 

With staff members often exposed to dozens of parents and family members of students/children each day - as well as the students themselves - it makes logical sense that we prioritise those working in places that Scott Morrison himself has said need to stay open to keep the economy afloat. Not to mention the impact school closures have on working parents and a child's education.

Morrison was quoted in the Canberra Times on May 5 as saying: "The expert medical advice is that schools can be fully open and the expert economic advice we have received from the Treasury is that not opening schools fully is costing jobs and the economy."
