Lagana, Swain & Tully Renew Call for Teachers to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine in Light of Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Approval

Upon news of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine receiving Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Senator Joseph Lagana, Assemblywoman Lisa Swain and Assemblyman Chris Tully (all D-Bergen, Passaic) issued the following joint statement:


“In light of yesterday’s announcement that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been given emergency use authorization, we are renewing our call for educators to join the other essential workers already given priority access to vaccines.

“We all want our children to get a well-rounded education, learning from their teachers and in their classrooms. Reopening our schools is safer as more educators have the opportunity to be vaccinated, and it is our hope that reports of additional doses becoming available brings us closer to this vital step.”
