TSC Directs Teachers To Take Covid-19 Vaccine

The commission has urged teachers to take the covid-19 jab. In a circular dated 16th July 2021, TSC boss Dr. Nancy Njeri Macharia noted that the move was informed by the upsurge of Covid-19 infections across the country.

She said: “Following the upsurge currently being witnessed in the positivity rate and increasing numbers of Covid19 infections across the Country, it is imperative that you mop up teachers and officers under your respective jurisdiction to get vaccinated as per the government directive vide the circular Ref No. OP/CAB.1/12A and dated 5th August, 2021.”

TSC CEO further directed regional and county directors to see to it that the above information reaches all officers and teachers.

“You are further directed to bring to the attention of all officers and teachers the contents of the attached circular,” stated Dr. Nancy Macharia.

This directive comes few days after the government directed all civil servants to be prioritized in the ongoing vaccination exercise and that those who will not have been given the 1 st jab by 23rd August, 2021 be treated as discipline cases and appropriate action taken against them.

In a recent NSAC meeting, it was reported that there was a low uptake of Covid 19 vaccines among public servants especially the security sector, teachers and the core civil service. This is against a background of access to vaccines having greatly improved especially among these groups

It was also observed that some public servants have deliberately avoided getting vaccinated so that they can stay away from work under the guise of working from home. This has negatively affected service delivery to the public
