The Mexican Association of Private Schools Yucatan affirms that vaccination in this age range represents good news for the educational sector.
MÉRIDA, Yucatán.- The upcoming start of vaccination against the coronavirus for children between 12 and 17 years of age who have comorbidities represents good news for the education sector, it is expected that once the population in this age range is covered, the return to the classroom could be accelerated, according to the Mexican Association of Private Schools (Amepac) Yucatán.
The president of Amepac, Elías Dájer Fadel, commented that if the vaccination of people from 12 to 17 years old is authorized in general and the sanitary protocols for the return to classes are respected to the letter, there could be good news in the next few months since there is no doubt that on-site classes are better than virtual ones.
He highlighted that to date, the private schools that the association brings together and that decided to return to face-to-face classes in a hybrid way, have known how to respect these protocols and have sensitized both students and parents in the sense that the schools do not represent focal points of contagion.
“When a case (of coronavirus) is detected, it is not because they have been infected at school, but because they are bringing them from home and it is recognized as such; the prevention measures are working effectively and what we are waiting for is to see the interaction of the protocol with the level of community incidence of the pandemic,” he explained.
The president of Amepac indicated that so far the information available is that the return to school has been good and that the sanitary protocols are working, as the positive cases in the classrooms are minimal.
