Kenney asked why aren't teachers being prioritized at this point.

Says rollout based on nat'l and provincial expert advice they've received.

Says they won't do this on arbitrary pressure, but on scientific advice.
Kenney says to put a healthy 25-year-old teacher ahead of a 65-year-old senior with chronic conditions would be a "real misallocation of scarce supply."

Wishes everyone could be vaccinated right now, depends on supply, but that's not improving.
Kenney asked about people going out to GraceLife.

His message to people of faith is that if you believe in the sanctity of life, please act accordingly - the virus is real, has taken the lives of 2k Albertans.
