Being considered as frontliners, teachers and school personnel are now proposed in the Senate to be included in the nationwide Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination program of the government.

According to Senate Committee on Basic Education Chairperson Sherwin Gatchalian, teachers and other school personnel put their lives into risks as they assure the continuous learning of students, urging him to initiate the inclusion of them to the program.

Frontline health workers, the vulnerable sector, and uniformed personnel were among the priority recipients of the vaccine as announced by the Malacañang.

Moreover, the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines in the country is expected in the first quarter of 2021.
