GHA offers COVID-19 booster vaccine to all teaching staff

The GHA has offered the COVID-19 booster vaccination to all teaching staff.

Last Wednesday, GBC asked the Government if they were considering doing this after strong representations had been made for the teachers to get the booster jab by virtue of their profession, rather than wait for them to be eligible by age.

The Gibraltar NASUWT had told us they were concerned this hadn't happened yet as teachers work in close proximity with mostly unvaccinated individuals.

In answer to GBC questions, the Government has now confirmed teachers were offered the booster vaccine on Friday.

So far, the GHA has administered over 15,500 first booster jabs.
