Petition Action

Add Prison Officers to the priority list for the COVID-19 vaccine

Petition Details

Prison officers should be allocated a specific level of priority in the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Additional Information

Prisons are an ideal spreading ground for COVID-19 due to the difficulty of maintaining social distancing within such an environment. We come into contact with high volumes of people every day, any of whom could be carrying the disease. Vaccinating prison officers also reduces the risk of us bringing the disease into the jail ourselves and spreading it to the prison population, helping us to protect those in our care and preventing a major crisis.
