Hindi kailangangan maging bakunado kontra COVID-19 ang mga kabilang sa limited face-to-face classes ayon kay Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Chairperson Prospero De Vera III.
“I did not push for mandatory vaccinations. In fact, [for] the limited face-to-face [classes] in medicine and health allied sciences there is no mandatory vaccination required,” anang CHED official nitong Huwebes sa isang briefing.
“I did not say there will be mandatory [vaccination]. It is the schools that were saying that it is best that they [get] vaccinated because…you cannot have social distancing in sports, that did not come from me,” pagpapatuloy niya.
Kaugnay ang pahayag matapos simulan ng ahensya ang pagbabakuna nila ng Moderna vaccine sa mga student-athletes nitong Miyerkoles.
“I always said that the answer is to convince the students and faculty to be vaccinated because in the first batch of degree programs the infection [rate] was very low because we were able to work with the Department of Health (DOH),” sambit pa ni de Vera.
Ilan sa mga pinayagang magkasa ng face-to-face classes sa kolehiyo ang mga programang nakalinya sa medisina, allied health sciences, marine engineering, at hotel and restaurant management. (VA)
