Unvaccinated teachers to face action from Nov 1


Deputy education minister Mohamad Alamin says teachers have a responsibility in convincing the public that schools are safe places.

JEMPOL: The education ministry will take action from Nov 1 against teachers who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19 without valid reasons, deputy education minister Mohamad Alamin said.

He said teachers are subject to the regulations issued by the Public Service Department that make full Covid-19 vaccinations mandatory for all civil servants by Nov 1.

Therefore, teachers who refuse to be vaccinated without valid reasons should not blame the government for any disciplinary action that may be taken against them, he added.

According to him, there are around 2,000 teachers who have yet to receive their vaccinations as of today.

“I therefore urge the teachers to come forward and be vaccinated before returning to school. Don’t blame the ministry and the government if disciplinary action is taken against them.

“This is not punishment or a warning. It is for the safety of students. Don’t let parents worry about the safety of their children at school.

“Teachers have a great responsibility in convincing the public that schools are safe places,” he told reporters after visiting the teachers’ quarters at a secondary school here today.

Mohamad also said district education offices need to play their part to help resolve the issue of dilapidated teachers’ quarters to ensure the well-being of teachers who serve in remote locations. - FMT
