Reports indicate that, some of the student nurses have refused to be vaccinated, prompting the school authority to take disciplinary actions against such students. Some of the students complained that, they were allegedly prevented from writing their exam because of their refusal to participate in the vaccination exercise meant to cater for frontline healthcare workers in the northern region. Ghana had begun her vaccination exercise against the novel coronavirus aimed at vaccinating at least twenty million out of its projected thirty million citizens. Below is a query letter to one of the students who refused to take the vaccine.
