The government approved BioNTech's vaccination age to be reduced to 12 years old. From tomorrow (11th), the government will open appointments for 12 to 15-year-old teenagers. The injection will be available as soon as next Monday.
The Secretary of Education Yang Runxiong recently stated that schools with a vaccination rate of 70 to 80% will be able to resume full-time classes.
The chairman of the Wan Chai District Principals’ Association, Dai Dezheng, stated on the Hong Kong and Taiwan program "Millenniums" today (11) that the school vaccination rate should not be the only indicator for the resumption of classes throughout the day. It should look at the overall community situation, otherwise students are still at risk when they go out for lunch.
The government approved that the age for vaccination for Fubitel was lowered to 12 years old. The government announced that in order to encourage more teachers, students and parents to get injections, it will provide three vaccinations. Vaccination will start soon on the Dragon Boat Festival next Monday (14th).
The chairman of the Wan Chai District Principals’ Association, Dade, pointed out in the program that if the school resumes classes all day, it means that students need to go out for lunch, and it is difficult for most schools to provide meals on campus.
He pointed out that the school vaccination rate can be an indicator for resuming full-day classrooms, but it cannot be the only indicator. It should depend on the overall community situation, otherwise students will still be at risk of infection when they go out for lunch.
For the government to provide injections for 12 to 15-year-old teenagers in three ways, including providing outreach services to the school for injections, but the minimum number of vaccinations is 300.
Dade is pointing out that some principals are worried that the number of 300 people is too large, but understands that the transportation process is complicated and cost-effectiveness needs to be taken into consideration. I believe that if the number of vaccinated schools does not reach 300, if there are more than 200 people, I believe they can discuss with the government.
In the initial stage, group appointments and injections are mainly used
He pointed out that because the school is about to start exams, and some schools will take advantage of the summer vacation to renovate, taking into account the itinerary, etc., it is expected that the group will make an appointment to the vaccine center for injections in the early stage.
He also pointed out that it is estimated that injections can still be arranged at school during the summer vacation. He believes that students are more familiar with the school environment, which will benefit them.
He pointed out that some parents are still concerned about the vaccine, and believe that schools should use educational methods to call for injections, such as explaining the benefits and potential side effects of the vaccine to students and parents, so that they have sufficient information to make decisions.

The outreach injection operator expects that the outreach team needs about 8 to 10 people
Leung Kwok Ling, Chief Operating Officer of Town Health International Medical Group, pointed out in the same program that it is expected that the outreach team will need about 8 to 10 people, which is beyond the current staff. It is estimated that each operating organization will only handle the outreach services of one school in the early stage, and hope to do it in the future. To "No one refuses to come".
He pointed out that before arriving at the school for injections, he would visit the school early to inspect the environment, including to see if the school provides a place to take care of unwell students, and to discuss with the school and teachers.
He pointed out that the transportation process is not complicated. There will be insulation equipment that will take out the vaccine from the vaccine center and transport it to the school, and will bring emergency medicines. It is estimated that the school does not need to provide special equipment.
They have had the experience of outreaching to private institutions to get vaccinations. They think that the school environment is more open and the arrangement is easier than going to the office.
