TSC Teachers Are Staring At Missing Their August Salary

More than 200,000 teachers are at risk of missing out on their August 2021 salaries after failing to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has since issued a seven-day ultimatum to teachers across the country to either take the full dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine or face disciplinary action.
