Chicago teachers to start getting vaccinated in mid-February
CHICAGO – Chicago’s school district announced Friday that it plans to start vaccinating teachers for the coronavirus in mid-February, though it remained to be seen if that would be enough to stop the teachers union from voting to defy the district’s order to return to their classrooms next week. The union's vote is set to conclude Saturday. The district is preparing for the return of about 70,000 of its students for part-time in-person instruction starting Feb. 1 — a full two weeks before the district’s vaccination program would begin. The roughly 355,000-student district has been gradually welcoming back pre-K and special education students, but some teachers have been punished for refusing to show up. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, CTU attorney Thad Goodchild said the union wants to let teachers and other staffers continue working from home until they are vaccinated, with each individual teacher returning to the schools when they receive the first of two vaccine shots.
