COVID-19: Over 100 Teachers In Terengganu Refuse To Get Vaccinated

Around 100 teachers in Terengganu are refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine shots, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar on Monday (September 13th).

He said the total only represented a small percentage of the overall total teachers serving in the state.

“I do not know their excuses for not receiving vaccine jabs.

“I only told them to reconsider their decision for the good of all parties including their families and other people around them,” he said as reported by BERNAMA. 

For the time being, Ahmad Samsuri said that the only approach is to persuade them to accept the vaccination as there are no regulations or laws to provide any action on them.

Ahmad Samsuri added that teachers who declined vaccination could undergo random COVID-19 screening tests when the school session starts, “It may be one way. If they are willing to take COVID-19 test every two weeks.

What do you guys think about this? Should teachers get themselves vaccinated if they want to teach students in school?
