Joe Biden has called on states to prioritize teachers for the vaccination program.

President Joe Biden ordered states to prioritize the teachers and educational staff for the vaccination.

Biden has urged the U.S. states to prioritize teachers in the COVID-19 vaccination programs. On March 3. 2021, Biden said that states should ensure teachers are vaccinated "with the full authority of the federal government."

The Biden administration has stated that vaccinating teachers is essential for the quick and safe reopening of the schools and kindergartens across the country. Biden mentioned that all educators, including teachers and other staff, should receive their vaccine (at least the first shot) by the end of March 2021. According to Reuters, the president said that three vaccines are being used in the U.S., and enough vaccines would be available for each adult by the end of May. Biden added that Merck & Co Inc would work with Johnson & Johnson to manufacture the single-shot vaccines.

The President of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, welcomed Biden's order by saying 'great news for everyone who wants in-school learning.'
