Action to be taken against 2,500 teachers who refused Covid-19 vaccines

KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry will be taking action against over 2,500 teachers who chose not to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin (pic) said his ministry, together with the Public Service Department, was looking at what action could be taken.

"The action we are looking at is in the context of public service procedure and laws.

"He said they would not be allowed to teach classes in person and would also be isolated from other teachers when they report to school," he told reporters during a joint press conference with Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein on Wednesday.

He said the 2,500 figure was small in comparison to the nearly 500,000 teachers nationwide, but the safety of students was paramount.

"The safety of the children is our top priority. We are studying the best course of action on this matter," he said.
