MAYOR GLORIA REACTS TO GOVERNOR’S ANNOUNCEMENT ON TEACHER VACCINATIONS
SAN DIEGO – Following his call last week for the State to prioritize vaccines for teachers and to provide a clear strategy to reopen schools safely, Mayor Todd Gloria issued this statement about Governor Newsom’s announcement today:
“Today’s news stresses the urgency from Governor Newsom to prioritize children by getting teachers vaccinated and providing guidelines for youth sports.
“I’m calling on school districts to provide clear, specific timelines on getting kids back in the classroom. We need schools to reopen.”
Mayor Gloria is working closely with local school districts on vaccination plans.
On Feb. 10, Mayor Gloria joined a bipartisan group of big city California mayors to call on the State to prioritize vaccines for school employees.
