Bengaluru, Jul 22: All teaching and non-teaching staff in all government, aided and unaided schools will be vaccinated on priority basis as a safety measure, said Health and Medical Education Minister Dr K Sudhakar on Thursday.

Schools will have to be reopened sooner or later. Children cannot rely on online classes forever as online classes may impact the psychological health of the children, he said while speaking to media in Bengaluru.

“We will have wide consultation process before arriving at any decision. Expert opinion will be considered before taking such decisions,’’ he said.

School staff will be accorded priority and for vaccination. Parents and family members of the students have already been vaccinated, the minister said.

Dr Sudhakar said, “Our vaccination coverage will cross 3 crore doses in few days. Many people have developed antibodies themselves. Permission has been given to reopen Medical colleges. Higher education classes will also be started shortly. All educational institutions will be reopened in a phased manner and measures will be taken to ensure safety of children.’’

The Health Minister said a decision will be taken after consulting the Chief Minister.

He said 5% of the total cases in the state are being subjected to genomic sequencing to look for new variants. Everything is being done scientifically. The information is shared with ICMR, Dr Sudhakar added.

    What about children below 18 ?? 18 and above are not yet covered, what use if teaching/non-teaching staff vaccinated ?? Please minister, oral announcement doesn't do a magic of vaccinating the citizens. We need sufficient supply of vaccination first, boasting afterwards.

    These so called vaccines which are hurriedly and short term tested may effect our ministers also. Since these vaccines may effect young and old, almost everyone including doctors or politicians and Indian bar association, mumbai doing a wonderful job trying to save Indians and humanity from evil of these vaccinations by raising former complaint against WHO and others also against forced and coercive vaccinations with the President, PM and HM based on recent two high court decisions, their site is...

    Hello Minister, pls do not reopen schools and education institutions for below 10th std as we don't want to expose our children to this Pandemic just for the sake of pleasing school mafia. In todays situation school education will not help anyone in rela life coz postgraduate teaching faculty has been pushed to sell fruits, vegetable and fish at road side by the uneducated, visionless Govt both Union and State. Major number of students came out from college in last two years are still looking for jobs where job market is completely flat. So as a responsibile parent its my opinion that for kids below 10th std its not worth to expise them to this pandemic.

    One size shoe fits all is the ignorant assumption of unproven experimental vaccine proponents thinking. A vaccine that has only success rate of 1.3% ground reality is touted as a saviour. It's nothing but a cover to hide behind a tool to fool people- we didn't lockdown for a fake pandemic and because of our great efforts in getting people vaccinated saved kids from 3rd wave seems to be the flimsy excuse. Despite world wide data of no danger from cold like viral infection to under 25 all these dramas are created at the expense of people pushing them to have unproven experimental vaccines as self appointed middlemen politicians great priority, unless people wake up and expose the pandemic scare this won't stop.

    Seriously RTI has to be raised on the contents of these vaccines whether Indian or western. Almost all the doctors do they know what is there in it and for why is a question mark? Whatever BigPharma pushes at them they seem blindly accept it ? Drugs and medicine fine but vaccines these elites and communist chinese can slowly euthanize population, during testing they can make use placebos and say efficacy 90 plus.

    Please open schools. Everything is open now and why education is left behind. Children will get psychological problems if online continues. Don't understand what is third wave. It is like virus is asking what is ur age and coming. Think it is a world wide scam
