Education minister: 3 in 4 educators already vaccinated or planning to

Three in four teachers (73%) have been vaccinated against the coronavirus or have set an appointment to do so, Education Minister Niki Kerameus said on Wednesday in an interview to Alpha TV.

Kerameus also asserted that schools and universities will open normally in the fall, although she acknowledged that Greece needs more people to get inoculated. “As of September, we will operate all educational facilities normally,” she said, “with universities, schools, professional schools, and such, open. We do have vaccines in our arsenal, but we we are still far from reaching herd immunity.”
