With just over a month to go back to school, the protocols and vaccination plans from the National government to prevent the spread of the virus during the school year began to appear and the Minister of Education, Jaime Perczyk, revealed the plan to increase the number of doses applied to underage boys and girls.
In his dialogue with Radio 10, the head of the Education portfolio stated that “the proposal to vaccinate in schools» to students who attend those same establishments. In this way, “the parents are not going around the vaccination centers” and they bring the vaccines closer to the little ones at a very delicate moment of the third wave.
This refers to the fact that no turn, students who do not have their complete vaccination schedule can receive their doses in the same place of study. In relation to this, He did not respond on whether they will request a health pass for admission to educational establishments or how many days of presence there will be, if every day of the week or will continue with a mixed modality.
How did the provinces that have vaccination in schools do?
The minister gave Santiago del Estero as an example, where it was recorded “above the 80% success in vaccination» although not all of it corresponds to the applications carried out in boys and girls in the school itself. Although it is true that the doses applied in this group increased from that moment, their results did not reflect a decrease in cases of COVID-19 in general.
In fact, last October it came to light that a girl died after being vaccinated at her school, although they quickly denied the information, although it generated a strong brake on vaccination by this modality. To this day, its effectiveness is still being evaluated since in recent months there were no classes and its scope is unknown.
