EveryLibrary Encourages Early Vaccination of Library Workers

EveryLibrary asserts that “library workers in public libraries and academic libraries are essential and should be included in state and local Phase 1b or Phase 1c vaccine distribution plans to protect staff and minimize risk to patrons and users. School librarians are included in plans for the education community and should continue to be prioritized.”

This statement comes after Dec. 22 guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that “does not include most librarians and library workers as either Phase 1b or Phase 1c priorities for vaccinations.”

EveryLibrary continues, “With the approval of both the Pfizer and Moderna coronavirus vaccines, the focus has now shifted to state and local health departments for implementation of their vaccination plans. Because we recognize that the Guidance from the CDC is not an order, we are calling on state and local health officials to correct the omission of librarians and library workers. …”
