GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (WMC) - A former Germantown assistant principal has been assigned a new position after comparing vaccine cards with yellow stars via social media.

Janna Matykiewicz, former assistant principal at Houston High School, compared COVID-19 vaccine cards to yellow stars worn by Jews in Nazi-era Germany.

The now-deleted post from Janna Matykiewicz read: “What’s the difference between vaccine papers and a yellow star? 82 years.”

The school confirmed Thursday that Matykiewicz has transferred from the Houston High administration to a district homebound/interim liaison teacher.

A Germantown School District spokesperson said earlier this week that portions of the investigations are still ongoing.
