Cameroon: Parents pull children from schools on rumours of vaccine plan

Education authorities in Cameroon are pleading with parents to return their children to schools after thousands stayed home on rumors that the youngsters would be vaccinated against COVID-19. 

According to the local media, several students were injured as they tried to run away from school so that they could not be vaccinated. 

The authorities said several thousand children from at least 15 schools had not shown up to class Monday after social media posts that the schools would vaccinate students against COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
