Supreme Court requires vaccination for bar examinees

The examinees for the Bar Examination this November 2021 are required by the Supreme Court of the Philippines to get themselves vaccinated.
Associate Justice Marvic Leonen stated, “For the protection of the bar personnel and examinees, we encourage our approved bar applicants to avail of the free vaccination offered by their respective local government units.”
Justice Leonen assured the examinees saying, “Focus on all you must do today. We are properly engaged. We have you covered.” He also said that the protocols for the bar examinations will be announced in early October “when we have an informed view of the possible situation at that time.” “We have also been preparing for various scenarios and actively monitoring developments from several credible sources,” he added.
Leonen said that the tribunal has coordinated with the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases on the possible inclusion in the vaccination program the bar applicants who do not fall under any of the vaccination categories.
“The bar chairperson, with the support of the court en banc, aims to have all the approved bar applicants fully vaccinated before November. In the meantime, we strongly encourage every bar applicant who falls under the priority groups to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” Justice Leonen said.
