The teachers union won’t like this one.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), concluded that teachers don’t need coronavirus vaccinations in order for schools to reopen safely.

“Vaccination of teachers is not a prerequisite for safe reopening of schools,” Walensky said during Wednesday’s White House COVID-19 briefing.

Jeffrey Zients, the COVID-19 response coordinator, agreed, saying, “Every school has the equipment and resources to open safely, not just private schools or schools in wealthy areas, but all schools.”

President Joe Biden has pledged to ensure nearly all K-8 schools will reopen for in-person instruction in the first 100 days of his administration.

OutKick’s Clay Travis has discussed the topic throughout the week:

It’s time to open schools and let students get back to normal lives. In fact, despite what the teachers unions say, it has been time for a while.
