GES Says Shs Students Have To Be Vaccinated Before Coming back

A few weeks ago, I informed you all about the day all senior high school students would return to school and promised to keep you updated.

Just a few hours ago, Prof. Kwesi Opoku Amankwa, who's the Director-general of the Ghana Education Service, gave parents and students some tips about this year's new academic calendar during his interview on Peace FM.

Prof. Kwasi Opoku Amankwa told the host Nana Yaw Kesseh a lot of things students should do in this era, but he focused on parents' seeing to it that their wards get vaccinated before they go back to their various schools when the resumption date is due. 

I know the double trackers are in school now for their exams, so I think he's sending this information to the single track students and parents whose wards are in school.

This was what Prof. Kwasi Opoku Amankwa said. "It's important that every student aged 15 years and above should receive the COVID jab." So, we plead with the parents to ensure their children are inoculated before they go to school" 

Do you agree with him?

I think they got inspired by what other European countries are doing, because in most European countries, it's mandatory for students to be vaccinated.

Many people online have reacted, and very few are in support of this move by the government. My question now is, how can they see to it that every student is vaccinated before going back to school?

He also stated that students should take all necessary precautions to protect themselves from this COVID.Days ago, the health sector told us all that the COVID cases in Ghana are dwindling, so do you think shs students getting vaccinated will really help the nation?

Tell me your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks for your time.

As always, "we see differently".
