Education Minister should consider extending COVID-19 vaccination to nursery and early years staff -Brogan

Sinn Féin MLA Nicola Brogan has called on the Education Minister to consider extending the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccination to staff in nursery and early years settings.

The party’s spokesperson on childcare said: 

“Babies and very young children require a level of close personal care.  

“During the current health emergency, staff working with children in nursery and early years settings face additional safety challenges. 

“The Minister of Education recently requested priority vaccination for staff who are providing personal care to pupils attending Special Schools.  

“I am calling for further consideration of vaccination for staff in nursery and early years settings who provide similar personal care.”
