No reopening of schools without vaccines for below 18: CM Yediyurappa


Bengaluru, Jun 22 (IANS): Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa on Tuesday said that no decision can be taken yet with regard to opening schools as those below 18 years cannot be vaccinated with clinical trials for this age group still on.

After receiving the 92-page interim report from by the 13 member high-level committee, headed by noted cardiologist Devi Prasad Shetty, set up to advise on on measures to control a possible third wave, he told reporters that though the committee has recommended reopening of schools, the state has not decided yet on this issue.

"We are facing some genuine concerns about carrying out the vaccination drive. In the present scenario, clinical trials are still on to validate the vaccine for the below 18 year age group... how can any state government take any decision at this point of time about schools and colleges where those below 18 years are studying," he said.

He, however, said that the state government was contemplating to reopen higher educational institutions in first phase of reopening of educational institutions in the state.

"Even to do this, we are thinking of first intensifying our vaccination drive for the 18 years and above age group besides vaccinating teachers and other staff members of colleges," the Chief Minister said.

Yediyurappa also said that the Shetty-headed expert committee has advised accelerating vaccinations as vaccines are the solution for Covid control.

"The committee has supported the relaxations in Covid induced curbs announced by the state government, and have suggested opening up educational institutions in the days to come, starting with higher education colleges, after vaccinating," he said.

After a meeting with the committee, Yediyurappa said with regard to opening schools and colleges, the committee has suggested giving priority to students and teachers in vaccination, to start classes in a phased manner by reopening colleges for students above 18 years to begin with, after vaccinating them.

    @ Neptune, anything in excess is poison while everything in limit is not harmful. Now coming to the radiation from latest gizmos is known and can be reduced or prevented. Laptops and cell phones are better be used in right way but injecting toxins directly intramuscular or subcutaneous are more harmful and start disrupting the natural immune functions immediately unlike the gizmos. Auto immune diseases and cancers are increasing as vaccine doses get increased. Study of US teens will reveal why they are more sick despite getting more vaccines than their counterparts in Europe. Autism is increasing too as vaccine doses get increased there compared to other developed nations.

    Finally cat is out of the bag. Govts are marketing agents of vaccine industries. I oppose this move as the vaccines are not approved by any FDA and their long-term study is not done, how can doctors or any committee decide what I or anybody should get injected with some experimental toxin containing solution as no remedy is available should they cause autoimmune diseases and cancers? With Lancet Peer reviewed study finding only less than 1 and 1.3% getting antibodies by the vaccines who would guarantee they will protect kids and staff who fall in the 99% ? Again this violates Nuremberg Code and punishable crime if enforced and illegal human rights violation. For a disease that's just like flu like illness with 99.997% recovery rate no mandates or vaccines are needed other than dalali of vaccine industries by any govts unless they are getting rewarded by vaccine industries as Quid Pro Quo. Let people decide how to take care of their health, let people exercise Informed Vaccine Choice. By the way let govt announce a Fund to be set up to look after the vaccine injured for lifetime without litigations to avail them. God forbid this but we can't sue the vaccine industries as they have big pockets and politicians in their pockets.

    You talk of Nuremberg code, yet you seem to know little of medical history. Of its many epidemiological storiies and its evolution. History is fascinating and terrible at the same time. But one thing. HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF. And will do so until we learn the lesson. By the way, good sir, the phones, computers we overuse can also cause cancer, impede sperm production in men who carry it in pockets, can cause insomnia, mental disorders and so on... perhaps we shouldn't use technology so much?

    One good decision, hope there is no U-turn . The government should approve usage and import from US and Canada the vaccine which are available for 12+ old kids and take steps to minimize the 3rd wave .

    Yes.Schools should reopen so that those who want can send their children to school.Children bring home knowledge,not virus. Those parents who have a lockdown side effect of mania, fear and psychosis, may lock themselves up with family at home and then venture out after the fear goes away one fine day.

    Until someone dies from our own family we will never understand the seriousness of this virus. What kind of a Doctor are you? Send your child to school. Don't pour out your half knowledge. Or if you are so knowledgeable let us know the hidden truth
