Unvaccinated students blocked from accessing university premises

Unvaccinated students blocked from accessing university premises

Unvaccinated students have been blocked from accessing Kyambogo University and Makerere university business school in Nakawa.

This follows the presidential directive to all universities and other tertiary institutions to put up strict covid-19 guidelines among them vaccination before fully reopening for students.

The vice-chancellor of Kyambogo University, Elly Katunguka has however called upon students to remain calm adding that the university already has a Covid-19 vaccination centre to vaccinate students as they come in.

The National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) had cautioned universities and other tertiary institutions against blocking unvaccinated students and staff when they reopen on November 1st.

Universities and other tertiary Institutions are set to reopen today for non-medical students who have spent at least four months home, following their closure by the government over covid19.

Several universities have 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.

“The universities should first put up alternative options like opening vaccination centres at their campuses upon reopening and mobilizing students to vaccinate,” he said on Tuesday.

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.
