Centner Academy, in Miami, Florida announced a pandemic policy requiring any students who are vaccinated to stay home for 30 days after every shot to prevent those students from "shedding" harmful materials onto their peers.
Parents of students at the Academy received a message from the school's Chief Operating Officer (COO) with information on how the school will handle vaccinated students.
It asked parents to hold off on the life-saving vaccine until next summer.
"[...] if you are considering the vaccine for your Centner Academy student(s), we ask that you hold off until the Summer when there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease."
It went on to declare vaccinated students would not be welcome at the school for 30 days following each vaccine dose or booster.
"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."
The idea the COVID-19 vaccines can be shed was thoroughly debunked multiple times, but Centner Academy proved before they're not particularly interested in science.
The same school was in the news and generating controversy this spring for telling teachers who received the vaccine they would not be allowed to return to work. They then changed their tune to allow those teachers to return, but not to work directly with students.
Local news station WSVN interviewed infectious disease specialist Dr. Aileen Marty of Florida International University, who said:
"What happens 30 days after they get vaccinated? What kind of nonsense is this?
" Where did they get that? There s nothing in the recommendations that—they made that up."
"That's science fiction—not even science fiction because it's pure fiction."

Despite the claims of places like Centner Academy, the Pfizer mRNA vaccine—which is the only vaccine available to children ages 12-15—does not contain any of the virus and cannot cause infection of those vaccinated—and especially not of the people around them.
According to a fact sheet published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), none of the vaccines contain the live virus itself.
"A COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19."
A statement released by one of the school's co-owners stated:
"Centner Academy's top priorities are our students' well-being and their sense of safety within our educational environment. We will continue to act in accordance with these priorities. The email that was sent to families today was grounded in these priorities."
Dr. Marty was disappointed with the school's stance.
"I don't find the letter interesting, I find it sad. I find it terrible that there's all this misleading information coming out of an institution that allegedly is an educational institution."
