Somerset County association calls on Gov. Murphy to prioritize public school employees access to vaccines
Leaders from the Somerset County Education Association are calling on Gov. Phil Murphy to prioritize access to COVID-19 vaccines for public school employees.
In a letter to the governor, leaders said, “The most effective way to ensure the safety and success of each district's reopening plan is to offer vaccines to educators immediately."
They went on to say, "The sooner we allow educators to become vaccinated, the sooner school districts can reopen more facets of our education system, including in-person learning, sports, graduations, arts programs, and other essential extracurricular activities."
