The Union of Professional Educators is closely following the vaccination program which should start later on this week. To date, it is still unclear which vaccine will be administered to educators at large, but sources have indicated that Astra Zeneca was the likeliest brand being considered.
The Union has its reservations on the matter since this brand of vaccine is supposedly less effective than other brands such as Pfizer. The UPE is adamant to make sure that the best brand is given to our front-liners in the educational sector since educators deserve, and require, the maximum protection against COVID-19.
The UPE will keep its members updated upon developments once Public Health Officials contact the union to provide further clarification.
