Priority access to vaccinations for teaching staff

Today, the Dutch education network organisations sent a letter to the cabinet proposing that teaching staff should be given priority access to vaccinations. 'Due to the above average risk of infection within the education sector, we ask the cabinet to explicitly include our staff in its vaccination strategy', said VSNU Chairman Pieter Duisenberg. 'Primary and secondary education should be prioritised in line with the advice issued by the WHO.'
