Despite of the government prioritizing teachers and other public servants as Frontline workers very few have gone to be vaccinated.
While speaking at Nakuru Level five Yesterday, TSC Secretary Dr Nancy Macharia revealed that only 110,342 teachers have received the full dosage since the exercise began, against the government’s 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.
This is inline to the directive by head of public service Joseph Kinyua who ordered public servants to take the doses or face displinary action.
According to a anonymous source from the Teachers Service Commission who spoke to People Daily, teachers who will not take vaccines are not going to receive their salaries.
Dr. Nancy Macharia reminded teachers that President Uhuru Kenyatta had favored them by allowing them to be vaccinated ahead of other workers.
