More Than 200,000 Teachers Could Miss Salary Over Covid Jab Snub
More than 200,000 teachers risk missing out on their August salaries for failing to take the Covid-19 jab.
Teachers Service Commission (TSC) gave the tutors, from both public and private schools, seven days to take the full dosage of the Covid-19 AstraZeneca vaccine in line with a directive by Public Service head Joseph Kinyua that all public servants take the two doses or face unspecified disciplinary measures.
Yesterday, TSC Secretary Dr Nancy Macharia revealed that only 110,342 teachers have received full dosage since the exercise began, against the government target of 330,671.
Another 178,734 had only taken the first dose, the teachers’ employer announced yesterday. Macharia termed the figures “far from impressive” and gave those yet to get the jab seven days to do so.
