Get vaccinated or forget about studies- gov’t to unvaccinated students

Get vaccinated or forget about studies- gov’t to unvaccinated students

The Ministry of Education Spokesperson, Dr. Denis Mugimba has come out to tell unvaccinated students to stop giving excuses after they were blocked by some universities from accessing campus premises.

While speaking to KFM, a local radio station, Mugimba revealed that the government made several announcements informing students to get vaccinated from their home towns, adding that they should not give any excuses because the Ministry okayed the institutions move to block unvaccinated scholars, lecturers, and non-teaching staff.

A number of institutions including Kyambogo University, Kampala University, IUIU, Uganda College of Commerce in Tororo and National Teachers College Kabale blocked students without vaccination cards from accessing their premises.

The students were left stranded outside as their vaccinated colleagues entered with ease. Institutions of higher learning were officially allowed to reopen yesterday, 1st November 2021 following a directive by President Yoweri Museveni to have them resume physical lectures amid the pandemic.

Several universities had issued communications, noting that they will not allow any non-vaccinated students to attend lectures but Saul Waigolo, the NCHE spokesperson says blocking students without trying other options is unfair.

Makerere University, Uganda Christian University, Busitema, Kampala International University, Cavendish University have already put in place vaccination centres where students and staff are being vaccinated days before the reopening.
