Miami private school tells vaxxed students to quarantine for 30 days as precautionary measure

Centner Academy, which is a pricey private school in Miami, Florida located near the Design District, sent a letter to parents informing them that vaccinated students will have to be kept at home and quarantined for 30 days for each inoculation they receive.

“Because of the potential impact on other students and our school community, vaccinated students will need to stay at home for 30 days post-vaccination for each dose and booster they receive and may return to school after 30 days as long as the student is healthy and symptom-free,” asserted the letter, according to CNN affiliate WSVN, a local television station.

The letter suggested that parents should consider getting their children vaccinated during the summer “when there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease.” The school teaches Pre-K through eighth grade and has approximately 300 students enrolled.

“Vaccine shedding is the term used to describe the release or discharge of any of the vaccine components in or outside of the body. Vaccine shedding can only occur when a vaccine contains a weakened version of the virus,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website claims. “None of the vaccines authorized for use in the U.S. contain a live virus.”

David Centner, who is one of the school’s co-founders, told The Washington Post that their decision was a “precautionary measure” based on “numerous anecdotal cases that have been in circulation.”

“The school is not opining as to whether unexplained phenomena have a basis in fact,” Centner remarked.

“Centner Academy’s policy was enacted as a prudent precautionary measure after much thoughtful deliberation,” Centner said in a statement that was given to CNN. “To be clear, the school leadership does not believe that one who is vaccinated can infect another person with COVID. Further, the school is not opining on whether a vaccinated person can negatively impact others.”

“However, due to voluminous anecdotal reports in circulation on this latter topic, we must err on the side of caution when making decisions that may impact the health of the school community. Until there are definitive and scientifically proven studies that refute these reports, we need to do what is best for our students and staff,” he commented.

He also told Local 10 News, “Big Pharma itself has created reasonable uncertainty as to whether their product may carry the risk of ‘adverse events’ via inhalation or skin contact to those who are unvaccinated.”

In April, the school requested that teachers refrain from getting COVID vaccinations.

“We’re not telling teachers that they can’t get [the vaccine], we’re just simply asking that they hold off a little bit,” Joshua Hills, who is a parent and Centner Academy employee, stated at the time.

“We’re not anti-vaxxers, we’re in favor of safe vaccines,” Hills claimed. “Are these vaccines, is this injection 100 percent safe? As a parent of two children that go to this school, I’m not willing to take the chance on a question mark.”

Centner Academy’s website clearly supports “freedom of choice” when it comes to vaccinations and states they accept religious exemptions as well.

“At Centner Academy, we value freedom of choice and honor freedom of religion. We are proud that our happiness school takes a comprehensive look at vaccine policies statewide, and we accept religious exemptions in-lieu of proof of vaccination,” the site proclaims.
