The guild council and the University administration – made proposals to the Ministry of Health for the vaccination of the University Medical Students. This was done because the students are on clinical rotations and are interacting like doctors and nurses on wards. 

The Guild President says that after consulting with students, they  made the request for the vaccines to be obtained. 


Boswell says these conversations pushed the Guild to contact both the Faculty Administration and the Ministry of Education about getting students access to vaccinations under the health care workers lineup. The Faculty made the proposal with support from the Guild. 

The students have been cleared and will have access to the vaccinations. 

Boswell shared that while the majority of students are ready, there are some persons who aren’t willing. 

”We salute the ministry for seeing the need- we commend the government for the inclusion of our students.”

he shared.
