Brasilia: The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has on Monday filed a petition to include media personnel in Brazil, Peru, and Uruguay in a priority group for vaccination.
Journalists are important workers and should be vaccinated in priority groups around the world as part of national Covid-19 vaccination campaigns,” said Union Secretary-General Antheni Belanger.
The Brazilian Federation of Journalists emphasizes that journalists also put themselves at risk and guarantee reliable and public interest information to every citizen as medical personnel, police, and fire brigade personnel.
Notably, 108 journalists have died in Peru so far.
