At least 3,635 primary and secondary school teachers have been vaccinated against coronavirus in Gulu, Amuru and Omoro districts.
963 teachers were vaccinated in Amuru out of an estimated 1,500, 2, 098 from Gulu out of the estimated 1,500 and 574 teachers from Omoro district out of the estimated 3,000.
Okello Apollo Kagwa, the Secretary Education and Sports Amuru District is happy with the turn up of teachers saying they might have overestimated the number of teachers to include those from private and community schools.
Meanwhile Okello Vinancio, the Omoro District Health Educator said teachers who did not turn up could have gone to their villages in other districts where they have likely been vaccinated from.
In Nwoya district, a total of 296 teachers out of the targeted 485 from government primary schools have fully been vaccinated against Covid-19.
The Inspector of Schools Nwoya District, Phonic Kidega Onekalit said that some teachers are just adamant to take the vaccine but that it would cost them.
Janet Museveni, the Minister of Education and Sports last month warned that teachers who are not fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be barred from accessing classes when school reopen.
Government is currently considering reopening schools in October after several measures proposed by the Education Ministry have been agreed upon and enforced.
