The government has warned tertiary institutions against allowing unvaccinated students to attend classes.
On Monday, the institutions resumed following several months of closure following the outbreak of covid-19.
In September, President Yoweri Museveni cleared Universities and other higher institutions to reopen on the condition that all the staff both teaching and non-teaching and students are vaccinated.
Dr Monica Musenero, the Minister for Science and Innovations who is also a member of the national COVID-19 task force, asked all institutions to abide by the President’s guidelines.
Dr Musenero said that a team has been dispatched to several institutions to ensure that the guidelines are adhered to.
The government is targeting to vaccinate 31,000 students above 18 years and 550,000 teachers.
