"Vaccination could be a mandatory element for admission to [teaching] profession," he said.
Shkarlet added that there was no compulsory vaccination, including COVID-19 vaccination, in Ukraine, and a person may have either allergic reactions or relevant medical contraindications.
He noted that today 65% of the people in Ukraine are involved in the educational process, including educators, children, their parents, and family members.
