MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The Alabama Education Association is urging the state to give teachers COVID-19 vaccinations following the deaths of at least 30 public school employees from the contagious illness.
The group, which represents public education employees, estimated Friday that 30 people have died from COVID-19. Theron Stokes, AEA associate executive director, sent a Friday letter to State Health Officer Scott Harris expressing concern that school employees are not getting vaccine.
Because of limited supply, Alabama is currently only giving vaccinations to health care workers, nursing home residents, people 75 and older and first responders.
