The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) strongly supported the conduct of face-to-face classes for all public and private educational institutions for basic education on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

However, COVID-19 vaccination shall not be made a requirement for the conduct of full face-to-face basic education classes. Instead, the IATF strongly encouraged public and private basic education institutions to implement COVID-19 vaccination programs for their students.

To allow children to be vaccinated, public educational institutions for basic education are urged to allow the Department of Health (DOH), in collaboration with their respective local government units (LGUs), to facilitate the conduct of COVID-19 vaccination programs on their premises.

Meanwhile, private educational institutions for basic education may, with their consent, vaccinate their students within their premises in collaboration with the DOH and the LGU concerned. The said COVID-19 vaccination programs must be carried out with the informed consent and signature of the parent/guardian, as well as the assent of the learner, in accordance with applicable DOH guidelines.

The DOH, in collaboration with the respective LGUs, will ensure that the COVID-19 vaccination programs for basic education students in public and private educational institutions are properly implemented. —Tacloban News Update (Source: OPS)
