Educators should be treated as front liners, when it comes to prioritization for Covid-19 vaccination. The Union for Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers said this in a reaction to the news of frontliners, law enforcement officials and the elderly will be receiving the first batch of vaccinations.

The UPE said in a statement that while it welcomes the positive news that Malta should be amongst the first countries to receive the vaccine for the virus, it felts, let down by the Government by leaving educators out of the front-liner professionals list that will be amongst the first to receive the vaccination.
