He said this during a meeting with education-related agencies like the Education Ministry and Office of the Basic Education Commission. The agencies had met to discuss the October 4 launch of a vaccination drive in Bangkok for students aged between 12 and 17.
Aswin said 33,047 or 88.21 per cent of students in 109 BMA-run schools are willing to get a Pfizer jab.
He said BMA’s Health Department will submit a list of students to the Public Health Ministry, so it can allocate vaccines and set up a panel to implement vaccination guidelines effectively.
“Students in schools that are unable to implement Covid-19 preventive measures will receive their jab at other vaccination sites specified by district offices,” he said.
Aswin added that BMA’s Education Department has released guidelines for the inoculation drive in a bid to boost awareness among students, guardians, teachers and education staff.
“The department will inform students’ guardians of the vaccination date and venue soon,” he said.
