The government plans to extend covid-19 vaccination centers to schools.
This was revealed yesterday(20th.August.2021) by the Minister of Education and Sports Janet Kataha Museveni.
Last week the minister made a call to all teachers, critical school staff members and learners above 18 years to go for vaccination as one of the conditions tagged on the possible phased school reopening.
However, her statement was not welcomed by authorities at the health ministry who noted students, save those in health training institutions, had not yet been included on the list of people eligible to receive the covid19 jabs.
But the minister says that for the recently received 300, 000 covid19 vaccines and when the next consignment of vaccines arrives, the health ministry shall extend vaccination posts to schools, universities, and tertiary institutions.Ms Museveni on Vaccination….
She further re-echoed the earlier statement that the sooner more teachers are vaccinated, the sooner the government will re-open our Education Institutions of Learning. END.
