Half A Million Vaccine Doses Secured For Teaching Sector
The National Teachers' Organisation of South Africa has voiced its concerns as teachers prepare for their vaccine jab following the arrival of half a million doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
Teachers are set to receive their vaccine jabs after it was confirmed that 500 000 vaccines have been secured for the teaching sector. The vaccines are said to have a shelf life of three weeks and must undergo testing and approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The Executive Director of the National Professional Teachers' Organisation of South Africa (NAPTOSA), Basil Manual, says that they are hoping that the FDA will have given its approval of the vaccine:
We are a little concerned but very excited that we have managed to get this far and its early days. We hope that by Thursday, at the latest that this would be behind us and the FDA will have given it's approval. Then would have about to and a half to weeks to get this rolled out.
Basil also went on to state that schools within the public will be prioritized and that taking the vaccine will be done on a voluntary basis and not made mandatory.
"Half a million for teachers and noneducators, because we have a large non-educator pool as well...starting will the public sector before you go to the private sector schools," he said
He continued to say that it is still voluntary in case some people start panicking and think that they are going to be forced to do this.
We hope that everybody will seize the opportunity of course.
