Miami school says students who choose to get vaccinated must stay home for 30 days

A private school in Miami recently announced that if students get the Covid-19 vaccine, they must stay home for 30 days following each shot. The school, Centner Academy Miami, FL, emailed families saying that if they chose to vaccinate their child, they would be required to keep the child home from school for 30 days.

Parents of students attending the school were sent a letter from the Chief Operating Officer explaining the guidelines. The letter included: “…if you are considering the vaccine for your Centner Academy student(s), we ask that you hold off until the Summer when there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease […] Because of the potential impact on other students and our school community, vaccinated students will need to stay at home for 30 days post-vaccination for each dose and booster they receive and may return to school after 30 days as long as the student is healthy and symptom-free.” 

David Centner, a co-founder of the school said it was a precautionary measure, saying “The school is not opining as to whether unexplained phenomena have a basis in fact, however we prefer to err on the side of caution when making decisions that impact the health of the school community.”

Earlier this year, the school received media attention for another letter they sent, this one to teachers. The letter requested that teachers and other staff hold off on getting their Covid-19 vaccine until the summer or face not coming to work for a period of time. They said it was to protect the unvaccinated from being “negatively-impacted”.

The Center for Disease Control has said that none of the three vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration contain live Covid-19 cultures. This means that the shot cannot cause someone to become sick with Covid-19, although it may cause side effects which mimic some of the virus’s symptoms. An infectious disease expert from Florida International University, Doctor Aileen Marty, told WSVN, “They made that up. That’s science fiction – not even science fiction because it’s pure fiction.”
