Health Minister Viktor Lyashko recalled that teachers are included in the list of professions whose representatives must be vaccinated for full-fledged work. If education workers do not have vaccinations against Covid-19 by November, they will be suspended from work for a period of quarantine without pay.
"Vaccination for teachers is an opportunity not only to keep working and provide quality knowledge to students. First of all, we are talking about the protection of their lives and health, the safety of children," Lyashko said.
Earlier, Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry has approved the list of jobs where the workers are obliged to get vaccinated. The compulsory vaccination campaign among these people should be over within a month.
According to Healthcare Minister Viktor Lyashko, the workers who don't get vaccinated during this month will be suspended from work, and they will not be paid their salaries. The official added that later, the compulsory vaccination will be conducted for workers of all state administrations, organizations and enterprises, social workers, and mail service workers.
