School Reopening: Principals Hail Decision But For Parents, Dilemma Isn't Over Yet

The Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI)’s emergency use authorization for Zydus Cadila’s covid vaccine may finally pave the way for educational institutions to reopen. The vaccine is expected to be available for children above 12 years by the end of  September.

The Union health ministry will soon revise the guidelines for opening schools and issue an advisory on the inoculation programme for children and adolescents, officials said.

“The government has been issuing advisories for schools and colleges from time to time through the pandemic. Now that the Zydus vaccine has been approved by the authorities, we may revise the existing guidelines for schools soon. Children above 12 years will now be vaccinated,” said a senior health ministry official.

The DCGI approved the use of ZyCoV-D in India’s vaccination programme on Friday.

“We are of the firm belief that in 3-4 months, the world will realize that covid is a thing of the past and we have to look forward and rebuild our community from what it has been through. Schools will be fully functional from April 2022, and the first steps towards normalcy will start soon. KPS is waiting for their children to be back so the empty classrooms can fill with laughter and joy once again,"
