People in their 20s will not receive their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine until late August or early September.  

This means young teachers may have to return to the classroom without being fully vaccinated at the beginning of a new academic year.  

General Secretary of the Teaching Union of Ireland Michael Gillespie and Eric Nelligan, teacher & Union rep and a member of Aontú education committee chatted to Adrian Kennedy.
