MEMORANDUM

 

 

Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          January 11, 2021

 

Subject:     Vaccinations, Etc.


In response to inquires relating to the attached document (Click Here) from the Erie County Department of Health, the BTF is not a healthcare provider, nor do we have the medical training to administer or coordinate vaccinations for the COVID-19 vaccine.

 

The procedure should be delineated be the Erie County Department of Health and New York State.

 

The vaccination of Buffalo teachers should be covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield or New York State. If necessary, you should apply to be excused from attendance to obtain your vaccination.

 

If there are problems, please email your LRS (Click Here) and copy This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

Accommodations
We have sent the District’s latest documents relating to applying for an accommodation to NYSUT Legal.
When we receive a response we will notify you.

 

In my opinion, it is absurd to ask a physician for this. (Click Here)

 

School Re-Opening Plans
Your questions concerns will be presented (again) to the District’s Reopening Committee for a written response.

 

We will be forwarding your responses to the BTF School/Site Health and Safety Assessment Survey to the District as they are completed.

 

Our number one concern will remain ensuring the safe and healthful conditions for students, teachers, parents, staff and community.

Please stay well and safe. Take no chances.
