Teachers in the Country have been urged to go for the COVID-19 government vaccine offered free at the various medical centres to protect their lives as well as those of students.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Chief Executive Officer, Nancy Macharia, called on the trainers not to ignore the vaccine, adding that the President granted all teachers an opportunity to get the vaccination regardless of age.

“Let us utilize this  opportunity to protect our lives,” revealing that it is sad to note that so far, the commission has  lost 37 secondary school teachers; including 24 principals, three Deputy Principals and 10 classroom teachers.

Speaking on Monday during the release of exam results for the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), Mrs Macharia however lauded the 151,494 teachers who have so far been vaccinated as of yesterday.

According to her, this constitutes 48.9 per cent female teachers and 51 per cent male.

This figure she stated was impressive despite the fact that most teachers have been on the move, either during the administration of the examination or during the marking exercise.

“The Commission is impressed with the high rate of COVID-19 vaccine uptake among teachers. Majority of the teachers aged 58 and above have taken the jab,” she said.
