Teaching unions are urging the Health Minister to reconsider the vaccine list.

The Government changed it last week to an aged based approach.

This is as opposed to vaccinating some workers, like teachers and Gardaí first.

Union Implores Minister To Change The List

Teaching Unions are holding their annual conferences today.

They plan to discuss a ballot for industrial action, in a bid to get the vaccine list changed back.

INTO President Mary Magner says the "rug has been pulled from under us."

"I implore the Minister to re-consider the downgrading of teachers on the vaccine priority list."

While the Union representing SNAs, Fórsa, has not ruled out strike action over the matter.

 

Gardaí Also Call For Vaccine List Change

Meanwhile the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors has made the same call.

General Secretary Antoinette Cunningham wrote on Twitter to say the Government must make the change "urgently."
