IF AS expected primary and secondary schools in the worst-hit Tier 4 areas will stay shut for at least an extra two weeks, surely then teachers' children and associated workers should be a priority for vaccination along with health workers and the most vulnerable.

We know that schools have been an area where Covid has been very prevalent so if we could protect this sector of the population, we would be well on the way to defeating this horrible virus that has sadly cost many people their lives and the country huge expense.
