UE STUDENTS GETTING JABS EXCUSED FROM CLASS
STUDENTS who will be inoculated during the “Bayanihan, Bakunahan” National Covid19 Vaccination Days from November 29 to December 1 will be excused from their classes, an official of the University of the East said.
UE President Ester Garcia said the move aims to encourage more students to get vaccinated in preparation for the conduct of limited face-to-face classes.
“Students who show proof of scheduled vaccination will not be marked absent,” Garcia said.
Last week, the University Student Council along with the Office of Extension and Community Outreach and Philippine Red Cross Manila Chapter facilitated an inoculation drive in UE Manila.
The government aims to inoculate nine million individuals during the three-day vaccination blitz.
Another vaccination drive is set on December 15 to 17 to achieve the goal of immunizing 54 million Filipinos against Covid19 by yearend.
