Poll: Should Leaving Cert students be vaccinated so they can sit their exams?

There are 61,000 Leaving Cert students, and they would need to be vaccinated before June to sit their State exams.

DO YOU THINK Leaving Cert students should be vaccinated sooner so that they can sit their State exams this summer?

Today the Business Post reported that ministers have discussed the possibility of vaccinating Leaving Cert students earlier, so that the ‘established’ version of the written exams can take place. 

In the Government’s vaccination plan, people aged 18-54 years old that don’t fall into any other category are the second last group to be vaccinated, while children and adolescents among the last group to be vaccinated.

So we’re asking: should Leaving Cert students be vaccinated sooner so that they can sit their State exams this summer?

Poll Results:

No (9998)
Yes, their studies are important (6981)
I don't know (1154)
