On mandatory vaccination, NSF tells educational institutions to refrain

Says not against COVID-19 vaccine, but forcing the same upon the students is not right.

The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has said today that no authority or educational institution should force students to take COVID-19 vaccination. According to the NSF, it has been receiving multiple complaints of educational institutions making COVID-19 vaccination compulsory for the students to attend classes/appear in examinations. “This is unbecoming of the authorities as vaccination should be taken with the free will and clear conscience of the receiver and not forced upon,” the apex Naga student body added.

The NSF, while placing on record that the Naga student body is not against COVID-19 vaccine, forcing the same upon the students is not the right way forward. Therefore, the NSF appealed to the authorities concerned to refrain from “such dictatorial practices which have been a cause of great mental and emotional stress to the young students”.

The NSF also appealed to the students’ community to exercise prudence and ensure that all COVID-19 SOPs laid down by the “appropriate authority” are followed in toto in their everyday dealings. “More so, the vaccine hesitancy needs to be done away after having thoroughly studied the health implications based on scientific facts and not just relying on hear-say or fake social media updates,” the Naga student body said while adding”. This way, our society can trump over the deadly COVID-19″.
