  • The National Union of Teachers (Lärarnas Riksförbund) wants to see children from the age of 12 to be offered a Covid-19 vaccine.
  • There is great concern that this week's school start will lead to an increased spread of infection, and that schools will once again be forced into hybrid or distance education. 
  • "It would benefit the students' schooling, and that is the aspect we highlight," Åsa Fahlén, the union's chair tells Swedish Radio News.
