Delegates from the Fórsa trade union's education division have backed an emergency motion calling on the Government  to complete the roll-out of Covid-19 vaccinations to staff within all special education schools.

It said the vaccination schedule should take account of the fact that SNAs in schools provide the same level of care to students as frontline healthcare workers.

The motion came after Minister for Education Norma Foley addressed the union's conference, which is taking place online today.

Minister Foley reiterated her defence of the Government decision to change the vaccine rollout programme from an occupation-based approach, to one led by age.
