A Michigan school district was forced to close its doors after several staff members suffered adverse reactions following a Covid booster clinic.
The Saginaw Township Community Schools admitted in a Facebook post Monday that a “large number” of faculty members fell ill following booster jabs.
The adverse events combined with a teacher shortage resulted in the school’s closure.
“A large number of our staff had negative reactions to the COVID booster shot given at a clinic over the weekend, resulting in absences today (Monday),” the district confessed on Facebook.
“As you may be aware, there is already a substitute teacher/staff shortage throughout the state of Michigan, further complicating the availability to cover those absences,” continued the statement.
In a statement to ABC12.com,a Saginaw Twp. district rep explained the school’s closure was not due to Covid illnesses, but rather booster vaccine side effects.
“At first, the blame might be leaning towards COVID-19, but a district spokesperson told ABC12 News that a large number of staff members had negative reactions to the COVID-19 booster that they received over the weekend,” ABC12 reported Monday.
The school did not explain what vaccine was administered and did not elaborate on the specific side effects, earned a “COVID-19 vaccine information” fact-check badge from Facebook.
A draft list from the FDA showing possible adverse reactions stemming from the vaccine included myocarditis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, seizures and even death.
The school did not highlight the exact number of teachers affected.
It’s also unclear if Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate, requiring millions of Michigan workers including teachers to be vaccinated by January 4, is responsible for the state’s staff shortage.
Back in March, Infowars reported on a school district in Iowa that also canceled classes when several teachers reported suffering adverse reactions after receiving their second doses of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine.
As more school districts abide by the authoritarian vaccine edicts and jabs rollout for youngsters, we can expect not only to see more adverse reactions in school staff, but unfortunately in students as well.

“A large number of our staff had a negative reaction to the COVID booster shot given at a voluntary clinic over the weekend,” the notice said. “There is a substitute teacher/staff shortage throughout the state, further complicating the availability to cover those absences.”
STCS said in a Facebook post Monday afternoon that parents of the students were contacted “as quickly” as possible on Sunday about the decision.
A school board meeting scheduled for Monday evening was slated to still take place according to a notice on the STCS website.
Booster shots have been approved by the federal government for adults who received the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna , or Johnson & Johnson.
“These recommendations are another example of our fundamental commitment to protect as many people as possible from COVID-19. The evidence shows that all three COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States are safe — as demonstrated by the over 400 million vaccine doses already given. And, they are all highly effective in reducing the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, even in the midst of the widely circulating Delta variant,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in an Oct. 21 statement .
