Puerto Rico is the United States territory/jurisdiction with the most public school students vaccinated

Description (Dublin Core)

Puerto Rico es la jurisdicción de los Estados Unidos con más estudiantes de escuelas públicas vacunados contra el COVID-19, con más del 85% de los estudiantes elegibles inoculados contra el coronavirus.

“Puerto Rico está liderando al país en vacunar a nuestros jóvenes”, sostuvo el secretario del Departamento de Educación federal, Miguel Cardona.

El funcionario detalló que, de acuerdo con datos del Departamento de Educación local, el 86% de los estudiantes de 12 a 15 años ha recibido, al menos, una dosis de la vacuna contra el COVID-19. Mientras, el 92% de los estudiantes mayores de 16 años recibió ya una dosis de la vacuna o está completamente vacunado.

En el caso de los docentes, Cardona señaló que más del 96% de los maestros está vacunado.

“Estamos muy complacidos con los esfuerzos en torno a la vacunación en Puerto Rico”, expresó.

A diferencia de los estados, en Puerto Rico la vacunación contra el COVID-19 es compulsoria para todos los estudiantes mayores de 12 años, de escuelas públicas y privadas, así como de educación superior. Solo están exentos de cumplir con este requisito aquellos alumnos y empleados de centros educativos que padezcan alguna condición de salud que no le permita ser vacunado o por consideraciones religiosas.
** English Translation** Puerto Rico is the territory/jurisdiction of the United States with the most public school students vaccinated against COVID-19, with more than 85% of eligible students inoculated against the coronavirus.

“Puerto Rico is leading the nation in vaccinating our youth,” asserted the secretary of the Department of Federal Education, Miguel Cardona.

The official said that, according to information from the Department of Local Education, 86% of students from 12-15 years have received at least one dose of the vaccine against COVID-19, while 92% of students 16 and up have already received one dose of the vaccine or are completely vaccinated.

In the case of the teachers, Cardona said that more than 96% of the teachers are vaccinated.

“We are very pleased with the efforts around the vaccination in Puerto Rico,” he expressed.

Unlike the United States, in Puerto Rico the vaccination against COVID-19 is compulsory for all students older than 12 years in public and private schools, as well as in higher education. The only exceptions for this requirement are those students and school employees that suffer from a health condition that doesn’t permit them to be vaccinated, or for religious considerations.
