The Fight for Vaccination Equity Continues!
Thanks so much to all of the early childhood educators, business owners, community members, and advocates who helped convince Mayor Bowser’s administration to include early childhood educators in the current priority vaccination group, along with K-12 educators.
Unfortunately, while the official guidance is that the District’s early childhood educators are now eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine, access to vaccination appointments remains extremely limited. There are no registration windows or appointment slots dedicated to early childhood educators. Instead, early childhood educators are competing with K-12 public and charter school teachers who may not even be teaching in person yet.
Collectively, we must continue to work to ensure every child care professional who wants a vaccination actually gets a vaccination!
