Teachers in kindergartens, and primary and secondary schools who have registered for vaccination against coronavirus will receive their first shots starting on April 1, koronavirus.gov.hu said on Friday.
The portal advised those who had not yet registered, as well as other school staff, people employed in creches and in vocational training to register until March 29 so that they could be inoculated during the week after Easter.
According to the portal,
out of 180,000 teachers in public education 102,000 had registered
for the jab before March 24, while 20,000 have already been inoculated. Those not yet inoculated will receive text messages with the date and vaccination point where they could receive their shots, the portal said.
The portal also said that the vaccines necessary for the teacher inoculation programme could be ensured through reorganising stocks set aside for the vaccination of the elderly.
The programme is aimed at inoculating all teachers in public education,
as well as 30,000 employees in secondary vocational training, and 13,000 people working in creches, the portal said.
