Back to School: Vaccinating Teachers


Hammer Forum is made possible by the Rosenbloom Family

Amid the push to reopen schools in the United States, how are educators being factored into the vaccination strategy? Epidemiologist Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding, education reporter Ricardo Cano, and LA Unified School Board member Jackie Goldberg discuss the vaccine rollout for teachers and school workers, realistic timelines for schools to re-open, and best practices for making schools safe. Moderated by Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson. With schools potentially open as soon as next month, the panel will also explore what schools need to do to keep students, teachers, school workers and their families safe.
