The premier states he comprehends that returning to in-class learning can concern parents, teachers and the school team. He states it is soothing that 98 per cent of high school teens have received one dose of the vaccine, and 89 per cent have acquired two doses.
“Our elementary school children are about 60 per cent vaccinated for the first dose and their immune response is very strong at this age,” he states.
“Teachers, for their part, have been massively vaccinated and have had priority access to the third dose since the end of December.” Source – cbc.ca
Entire details of the government’s program are anticipated to be disclosed Thursday, but Legault states rapid tests will be made known to schools.
