(MENAFN)The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) voted in favor for media workers to be prioritized in the COVID-19 vaccination campaigns.
It “supports the petition of its affiliates in Brazil, Peru and Uruguay for media workers to be considered as essential workers and their inclusion in the priority groups in the COVID-19 vaccination campaigns," according to the IFJ.
IFJ General Secretary Anthony Bellanger further stated that "From the onset of the pandemic, journalists have overwhelmingly proved the essential role they play in informing their citizens and fighting against disinformation over the Covid-19. Journalists are essential workers that should be treated as such within national COVID-19 vaccination campaigns worldwide.”
