GSBA Statement on Vaccine Priority for Educators


Yesterday, Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Public Health Commissioner, Dr. Kathleen Toomey announced that on March 8, 2021, educators and staff (Pre-K, K-12, DECAL licensed or exempt childcare programs), will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. We appreciate the state for prioritizing K-12 public education in the fight against this devastating virus. Georgia’s public education system plays a vital role in our society through not only education, but many services that keep our students healthy and productive, mentally and physically. As we move into this next phase, we continue to face many challenges, but we are doing so with the necessary tools to ensure a brighter future for our most valuable resource, our students.
