The parents said they were not mentally ready to send their children back to school unless all the students were vaccinated and schools took appropriate measures to maintain Covid-19 health guidelines.
Forum President AKM Ashraful Haque said all students, teachers and staff members should get vaccinated before reopening schools.
He proposed that students aged 12-18 should get vaccinated in the first phase and those younger get vaccinated in the second phase
