Centner Academy, a private school located in Miami, Florida, revised its policy regarding teacher obligations.
The school prohibited teachers from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine if they want to come into contact with students.
Leila Centner, one of the school’s co-founders, explained to NBC 6 that the decision came amid the school administration’s uncertainties regarding the safety and possible side effects of the jabs.
In her statement, Centner added that the COVID-19 vaccine might be associated with reproductive problems among women.
She listed bleeding, irregular menses, post-menopausal hemorrhaging, miscarriages, and a complete loss of menstruation (amenorrhea).
Centner Academy’s co-founder also emphasized that those who received the vaccine might be able to transmit ‘a certain substance’ to unvaccinated people.
Centner clarified that part of her school’s suspicion stems from the fact that vaccines are still in experimental phases of development.
She stressed that it would take until 2023 for the jabs to receive FDA’s full approval, adding that the school’s view on vaccines might change once they are approved.
Centner Academy’s co-founder cited information about COVID-19 vaccine side effects collected by the governmental Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
According to the data from VAERS’s website, vaccination was followed by more than 86,000 adverse events, including 3,186 deaths.
Centner also emphasized that many adverse events might not have been reported as a result of inherent limitations of the system.
One of the parents of Centner Academy’s students criticized the new policy.
A woman who introduced herself as Lidia said that the entire year has been disorganized and expressed her fear that the policy might create shortages of teachers at the school.
She pointed out that, despite claiming to be pro-choice, the school instituted a policy that breached one’s freedom to choose what to do with her own body.
Lidia also criticized Centner’s claim about a substance being transmitted through vaccination, describing it as ‘insane.’
The woman said she would be willing to remove her child from the school but that her already-completed tuition fee payment prevents her.
Amid reproductive issues controversy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently issued a recommendation that encouraged pregnant women to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said there were no side effects among babies and pregnant women who received the jab in the third trimester.
