After the suggestions of the states, the center is now preparing for the vaccination of all teachers before the 12th board examination. For this, the Ministry of Health is being contacted. It is planned to install vaccines by setting up special camps in the states. However, before this, the availability of vaccines and the number of teachers are being tested in all states. Depending on the availability of the vaccine, students 18 years of age and older may also be vaccinated at the camp prior to the examination.
The ministry is also serious about the vaccination of teachers because the matter of the death of teachers due to duty in the recent Panchayat elections in Uttar Pradesh has been in the discussion. In such a situation, she does not want to take any risk regarding teachers before exam duty. This is the reason that the scheme for 100% teachers' vaccination is being worked out. According to the information, a large number of teachers have got vaccinated in all the states. In this campaign, a plan is being made to vaccinate the teachers left out.
If sources are to be believed, the states have also given the opinion of vaccination on the basis of priority for students of 18 years or above appearing in the board and upcoming competitive examinations. He says that when people above 18 years of age are allowed to apply the Corona vaccine, then students of this age should be given the vaccine on priority basis. The National Testing Agency (NTA) with competitive examinations including CBSE has been suggested to plan it. Both the agencies are serious on this suggestion of the states.
Meanwhile, the health safety protocol prepared for the examination is also being made very strict. It will also have an isolation center and first aid in each school.
