Middle School Announcement

Covid-19 Student Vaccination

***In order for your child to receive the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine at MAK, one parent or guardian must be present at school.  The purpose of this requirement is to ensure that elementary students feel safe and secure when receiving the vaccine.  By having one parent or guardian present, the goal is to reduce any fears and make the child feel comfortable.  Please use the next two weeks to make the necessary adjustments to your working schedule.  Thank you for your cooperation.  After the child has received the vaccine, parents or guardians are to sign out their child and go home.***   

When parents or guardians arrive at MAK, please social distance by staying with your child only and adhering to all Covid-19 government regulations:

  1. Wear a mask at all times and sanitize your hands
  2. Conduct a temperature check
  3. Complete a health declaration form

MAK has secured Friday, May 13th, 2022 as the vaccination distribution date on which medical staff from the CECC will come to campus and administer jabs to the respective students.  The jabs will be administered from 1:30 pm through 3:15 pm in the MPR.  

On the day (5/13/2022 ) of the vaccination, students must bring their health insurance card, ARC.

After vaccination, please stay at MPR for at least 15 minutes. If you feel uncomfortable afterward, please tell the doctor and nurses in the vaccination area.

Precautions before vaccination:

  1. Do not stay up late the day before.
  2. Students should not fast prior to vaccination.
  3. Encourage students to eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water to avoid post-vaccination dizziness caused by fasting and dehydration.
  4. Wear loose-fitting, short-sleeved clothing.
  5. Make sure students do not feel uncomfortable before vaccination.
  6. In case of discomfort, it is recommended to wait until the condition has stabilized before vaccination.

疫苗接種當天(5/13/2022),學生必須攜帶健保卡、ARC

接種疫苗後,請在MPR至少停留15分鐘。如果事後覺得不舒服,請告訴接種站的醫生和護士。

疫苗接種前應注意的提示:

  1. 前一天不要熬夜。  
  2. 學生在接種疫苗前不要禁食。
  3. 鼓勵學生均衡飲食,多喝水,以避免接種後因空腹和脱水引起的頭暈。
