TSTA/NEA members deserve a safe workplace!

TSTA members are on the front lines during the COVID-19 crisis and deserve respect, and respect means a safe workplace and the ability to protect and take care of our families.

CDC guidance has reprioritized teachers, school staff and childcare workers, including us in the highest priority group for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Please reach out to your county health administration or your local pharmacy for instructions on where to receive the vaccination.
