TSC Directs Teachers To Be Innoculated Within 7 Days To Avoid Disciplinary Action

TSC directs teachers to get covid-19 vaccination within the next 7 days. While speaking in an event event meant to scale up the uptake of the COVID-19 vaccination among teachers, TSC Ceo urged teachers to be innoculated before the set deadline. 

“All those who are yet to be vaccinated must also take advantage of the current vaccination drive to get the jab ahead of the August 23, 2021  deadline issued by the Head of Public Service Dr. Joseph Kinyua to all civil servants,” said Dr. Nancy Macharia.

Earlier on, the government had cautioned that cases of teachers who will not have been innoculated by the offorementioned date will be treated as indiscipline.

According to data from TSC, 178,734 teachers have been  vaccinated with the first dose while 110,342 have received the  full dose (1 and 2) as of last Saturday August 14th 2021.

The government targets to vaccinate all the 330,671 teachers on TSC payroll and thousands teaching in private schools.

Although the government had prioritized  and identified teachers as frontline workers together with health, police and  military officers who were targeted during round one of the inoculations, the number of teachers vaccinated so far  is still not impressive.

Dr. Macharia noted that the commission had lost 81 teachers to the deadly virus since the outbreak. On the same breath out of the 549 cases reported, 468 teachers have fully recuperated.

She said: “We have already borne the brunt of COVID-19 and we must not keep  going that road any further. So far from 549 cases, we have lost 81 teachers to the virus since it was first reported in the country. Thanks to our full medical insurance cover, 468 teachers have fully recovered from  the virus.”  

TSC boss further noted that Aon Minet is ready to put its best foot forward in a bid to see to it that all desinated facilities attend to teachers and their dependents in good time.

“As a Commission, we have instructed our medical health insurer to ensure  that all facilities that attend to our teachers are fully able to  provide fast and quality services to our teachers and their  dependents,” she said.
