The statement from the school tells employees who have not yet received the vaccine to wait until the end of the school year to get it. “It is our policy, to the extent possible, not to employ anyone who has taken the experimental COVID-19 injection until further information is known,” the statement continues.
The school in question is The Centner Academy, this school was founded by anti-vaccine advocate Leila Centner and promotes “medical freedom” from vaccines according to its website.
From The Daily Caller:
The decision was made after consultations with “doctors who are on the front line,” according to the letter. The statement proceeded to cite unverified accounts of women who allegedly reported “adverse reproductive issues from being in close proximity with those who have received any one of the COVID-19 injections.” (RELATED: Republican Doctors Launch Ad Urging Americans To Get Vaccinated)
“It’s baffling. Why would she not want her teachers to get vaccinated?” Greg Tatar, whose son attends the school, said of Leila Centner, the school’s co-founder, according to WFOR-TV. “I personally disagree with that one, I got vaccinated six weeks ago and I’m very happy about it. It’s a very safe vaccine for all.”
