After anti-purge doctor leaves, UnB glorifies “science and democracy”

The University of Brasilia (UnB), on Friday (28/1), defended “science and democracy” after the medical school coordinator, Selma Kokielhaus, asked for the job to be fired on the day the institution agreed to collect a vaccine passport to enter the campus. The teacher has not had any doses of vaccinations against COVID-19.

Medical coordinator resigns after UnB charges for vaccination passport

In the note sent to capital CitiesThe World Bank reiterated the decision based on the directives of the health authorities, without a vote against it. The new measure took effect on February 11.

“The University of Brasilia remains guided by science and democracy, and sustains life. In fulfilling its mission, UnB advises that in addition to adopting safety protocols, the entire population is vaccinated.”

The main university in the federal capital also clarified that the dismissal of coordinating positions, by an individual decision, is expected within the entity’s regiment.

“The appointment of professors to course coordination positions at UnB is related to the internal organization of the academic units and is therefore determined by their respective boards and collegiality. He emphasized that the professor responsible for course coordination can leave the position by his own decision while respecting the decisions of his unit’s internal cohort.

understand the situation

Last Thursday (1/28), then-Medical School Coordinator, Selma Cockelhaus, issued a public statement to report the job dismissal. The decision came hours after the University of Brasilia unanimously agreed to charge a health passport fee to access covered and closed areas of the institution.

In a joint statement with course members, the professor stated that she had not taken any dose of the immunizing agent and thus ended up “at odds with the college management”.

UnB agrees to collect the vaccine passport to enter the university

“I announce my decision, which has been duly formalized to the Director of FM on this date, to separate myself from the graduation format from the medical course. This decision was prompted by the recent application of the Health Passport at the Medical College, approved today by before CAD for the entire university community,” he began.

“Consequently, given that I made up the unvaccinated server pool,” he said, “my position as coordinator was at odds with the college administration.”

“individual liberties”

The professor stated that she is a “hard advocate of individual liberties” and said she was “sensitive to the moment of the pandemic that she experienced,” but cast doubt on formulas that had already been tested and approved by the country’s health authorities and endorsed by the Ministry of Health.

“Vaccines are known to be in development, and at this point, both safety and efficacy raise many questions. He also emphasized that available vaccines do not prevent infection or infection, as evidenced by the high incidence of infection in vaccinated individuals.

See note from UNB:

“Expanding the requirement for proof of covid-19 vaccination in all University of Brasilia (UnB) buildings was a decision of the Foundation’s (CAD) Board of Directors. The measure was approved without votes against it at a meeting on Thursday (27) and takes effect on February 11.

The appointment of professors to the UnB course coordination positions relates to the internal organization of the academic units and is therefore determined by their private and collective boards. The professor responsible for coordinating the course may leave the job by his decision, taking into account the decisions of the internal regulations of his unit.

The University of Brasilia remains guided by science and democracy, and sustains life. In fulfilling its mission, UnB advises that in addition to adopting safety protocols, the entire population is vaccinated.”

Read the full doctor’s letter:

Dear teachers, technicians and students,

I publicly announce my decision, duly formalized to the Director of FM on this date, to withdraw from the coordination of undergraduate medical courses.

The impetus for this decision was the recent implementation of the Medical School Health Passport, which is today approved by CAD for the entire university community. Thus, given that I made up the unpollinated server pool, my position as coordinator was at odds with the college administration.

Additionally, I declare that I am sensitive to the pandemic moment we are all experiencing, as well as to the solutions created for patient care. Of these, vaccines are known to be in development, and at this point, both safety and efficacy raise numerous questions. Furthermore, the available vaccines do not prevent infection or infection, as evidenced by the numerous cases of infection of the vaccinated individuals.

In light of the above, I believe that imposing a health passport is inappropriate, regardless of individuals who have recovered from Covid-19 infection and who have natural immunity, as well as those who do not feel safe in available vaccines and believe that the risk outweighs the benefit. Moreover, I am a staunch defender of individual liberties.

I declare to everyone that I am very grateful to FM management for the trust they have placed in me, as well as the extensive learning I have gained over the past three years. My gratitude to all the professors and technical servers of the undergraduate secretariat and administration, as well as the students.

Hoping that there will be calm and common sense in decision-making by university administrators, I dedicate myself to helping everyone within my capabilities.

Grace and peace to all!
