Teachers are considering strike action after changes were made to the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

The ASTI, TUI and INTO have agreed a joint motion on vaccine prioritisation for teachers, to be debated at their annual conferences.

Teachers had been due to receive the vaccine as essential workers, but the priority list was changed last week to an age-based model.

Eamon Dennehy, president elect of the ASTI, and Neil McDonnell, Chief Executive of ISME, joined us to debate whether this would be the right course of action.
