Survey: AFT members getting vaccinated at high rate

According to a survey conducted by Hart Research Associates, 81 percent of AFT members have either received a COVID-19 vaccine or are scheduled to get one.

“Educators are rolling up their sleeves, not only to get vaccinated but to return to in-person schooling with the CDC’s safety guardrails in place,” said AFT President Randi Weingarten in a statement.

The survey, released this week, was conducted by phone from March 26 to April 1, with 1,702 AFT members participating.
