(FREE WEST MEDIA) – “The start of school-year is approaching, and this time we are still preparing for it in the spirit of protection against the Coronavirus epidemic, because the virus is still here, and, unfortunately, a fourth wave cannot be ruled out.” With this introduction on the website of the primary school named after Ádám Würtz, the three-time Munkácsy Prize-winning graphic designer and renowned artist born in Tamasi, pupils aged 12 and over were urged to take the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at their school.
The school’s biology teacher decided to reward pupils who had already received the Covid-19 vaccine and punish those who had not been vaccinated. The latter group had to take their seats at the back so as “not to cough on” their friends.
“My son told me about it last week, after he got home from school,” István told Hungarian daily Blikk, and he asked not to be identified by his real name in the article because he did not want his child to suffer any disadvantage because of his statement. “My son also said that the biology teacher kept making comments about the unvaccinated, and then told the class that those who had a vaccination card would be given a better grade.”
