A new survey of educators by the nation's second-largest teachers union shows as of April 1 at least 81% of educators had been vaccinated for COVID-19 or were scheduled to get their shots, according to data shared with CBS News by the union.

This latest metric is a measure of progress made toward President Biden's call in early March to prioritize vaccinations for teachers by April 1, but also indicates a portion of educators are still waiting for their vaccinations.

"Let's treat in-person learning like an essential service that it is," Mr. Biden said in his March 2 address, "And that means getting essential workers who provide that service educators, school staff, child-care workers get them vaccinated immediately. They're essential workers."

"We want every educator, school staff member, childcare worker to receive at least one shot by the end of the month of March," Mr. Biden added.

1. Progress. Why are we seeing such wonderful headlines? Look in the mirror.

Because you voted and you did everything in your power and others did as well to ELECT DEMOCRATS. There is a brighter future because democrats want our children to wake up in a world that is better than the one they had. The QOP isn't like that. They only see the world as an auction, where everything has a price and profit is their number one priority.

2. Once they hit 80%, they're pretty much done. May as well move on.

I'm guessing there are a few of the unvaccinated 20% who are trying to get a shot. But most of the 20% are avoiding it or actively refusing it.

Getting to 100% is probably unrealistic, at least until the vaccines are fully authorized, not just "emergency" authorized.

We need to get vaccines into all available voluntary arms, then focus on approvals for younger teens and pre-teens. I'm not sure how to work on the anti-vaxxers.

It was nice that Moscow Mitch spoke in favor of getting the vaccine. If only we knew who "Q" is, maybe we could have him (or her, or them) create a PSA.

3. There are anti-vaxxers teaching at our local school

I'm thinking about attending a school board meeting and asking that the anti-vaxxers not be allowed to teach science. Anyone who is so obviously anti-science shouldn't be teaching it. I'm in the mood to be snarky.

6. I also would not let them teach Government (Civics) or History.

The bubonic plague in Europe, the smallpox decimation of Native Americans, obviously all caused by Jesus' wrath.

Civics? The administration is a shadow government, the congress is a deep state, the real leader (for life) is named "Q".

5. They need to be back in the class room....

Thankfully, the vast majority are. My wife and her school have gone very well. And they started back in August.
