Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has called on teachers across the country to get Covid-19 vaccine saying they are not amused with the number that has so far taken the jab.
Speaking today the commissions’ Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia says that teachers should embrace precautionary measures and protect the children.
“Let’s do this together teacher, I wish to encourage you to take this vaccine you were identified as front-line worker if you are vaccinated our children will be also safe… I was vaccinated and I’m feeling comfortable please help us in this nobles cause,” she said.
According to Macharia, 41 teachers employed by the commission have succumbed to the novel coronavirus.
Health Ministry directive asking the vaccinated people to continue observing Covid 19 protocols has also spiked mixed reaction.
“Why are we told that after being vaccinated we should still maintain social distancing, wear masks, wash hands, and obey all other preventive measures. If I am vaccinated, I can’t get the disease…if I can’t get the disease, I can’t spread it, so why are we being told to still do this? Something is off about the vaccine, I wanted to take it but I will not,” James Komu Ngara resident said.
