NDP celebrates child care worker vaccine change

Published on April 27, 2021

QUEEN'S PARK — Official Opposition NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and the NDP's Child Care critic Bhutila Karpoche released the following statement in response to news that child care workers are being made eligible for vaccination:

"Child care workers across Ontario have been working tirelessly throughout this pandemic to protect our little ones and ensure that many parents can continue their essential work.
 
For weeks, the NDP has joined child care workers, operators, families, experts and advocates in calling for these essential child care workers to be prioritized for vaccination.

Today's change is late, but welcome, and is a victory for child care workers and families. We’ll continue to fight for all frontline workers — our COVID heroes — to be offered their vaccines urgently.”
