California to set aside 10% of first doses of vaccine for educators and school staff

Governor Gavin Newsom said on Friday that the Golden State plans to reserve 10% of the first doses of the vaccine for educators, school staff and child care providers starting in March to bring children back to classrooms.

The move aims to jumpstart in-person learning after nearly a year of distance learning for most of California’s 6 million K-12 students. The news comes a day after California legislative leaders announced a $ 6.5 billion proposal to reopen schools in the spring. Newsom said it wasn’t fast enough and suggested he could veto it.
