About three-quarters of teachers in Lääne County schools want to be vaccinated, but it is not yet known when the vaccination will be given.

Ain Iro, the director of Lääne County Common Gymnasium (LÜG), said that they have had to make a list of teachers who want to be vaccinated, but the school does not have more detailed information about the future.

Of LÜG’s 33 teachers, 25 want to be vaccinated. “The percentage is quite high,” Iro said.

Anne Mahoni, the principal of Haapsalu Basic School, also confirmed that about three-quarters of the teachers have wanted vaccination, but she also does not have more detailed information about the organization of vaccination injections.

Mahoni said he had not asked all those who gave up vaccination what the reason was, but some teachers had refused for health reasons. They have advised Mahon to consult a family doctor.

Laine Belovas, the director of Noarootsi Gymnasium, also said that three quarters of teachers wanted to be vaccinated.

Margus Maiste, a teacher at Noarootsi Gymnasium and Haapsalu Vocational Education Center, said that he is one of those who has registered. “I thought for a long time and decided not to vaccinate myself, but for others, so as not to transmit the virus,” said Maiste.

Andres Kampmann, the director of the Oru school, did not want to say how many teachers wanted the vaccination. “Most still wanted to,” Kampmann said.

According to Kampmann, he has understood that vaccinations will be started in the order in which the list is submitted. “Whoever submitted the list first will be the first to be vaccinated,” he said.

Jaanus Mägi, the head of Taebla school, said that all teachers in their school wanted to be vaccinated and did not have to convince anyone individually. Only a few older educators had studied whether they could get another Astra Zeneca vaccine for teachers, because Astra Zeneca is not recommended for the elderly. “They were allowed to meet if possible,” said Mägi.
