A Miami Private School Won’t Let Vaccinated Teachers Near Students

  • Staff at a Miami private school are facing a threat to their employment if they choose to get a coronavirus vaccine.
  • One of the school"s co-founders informed staff 'with a very heavy heart" " citing false information ' that if they get vaccinated, they will not be welcome in classrooms or around students.
  • "We cannot allow recently vaccinated people to be near our students until more information is known,' said Centner Academy co-founder Leila Centner in a letter sent to staff.
  • In the letter, Centner referred to the vaccine as 'experimental.' She then gave employees an ultimatum: Inform the school if they've already been vaccinated so they could be kept distanced from students, or wait until the end of the school year to get inoculated.
  • "If you want to get the vaccine, please wait until the school year ends and you will not be able to return to school until clinical trials are complete,' the letter reads, "(If a position is still available at that time).' Centner is also requiring faculty and staff to fill out a 'confidential' form revealing whether they have already received the vaccine or intend to get it.
