Teachers are trained to teach, not to administer vaccine: DepEd


Education Secretary clarified in a recent press briefing that teachers would not administer vaccines against COVID-19 once it is available.

“Dini-deny namin iyong perception na ang mga teachers ay sila mismo ang mag-vaccinate ng ating mga kabataan or your fellow teachers dahil may COVID o wala, anong klaseng sakit o wala, very strict ang protocol sa medicine na kung hindi ka trained medical personnel, hindi ka naman talagang isasabak sa mga medical procedures,” Secretary Briones said.

But teachers will assist the national government in its vaccination program through giving right information about the vaccine.



“Ang malaking kontribusyon ng mga teachers ay iyong pagpalaganap ng impormasyon hinggil sa vaccine. But even for that, kailangan silang i-brief nang husto, nang maayos ng malaman nila talaga kung ano benefits o ang protection na maibigay ng vaccine sa mga teachers,” Sec. Briones said.
