Dear Students and Colleagues,

The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic since early 2020 has posed extraordinary risks to global health. Teaching arrangements at the University have been adversely affected. Although the COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong has stabilized, by no means we can lower our guard. The new academic year will begin in September this year. The University plans to resume face-to-face classes and activities with an increasing number of people taking part in activities on campus. To reduce the risk of infection, all members of the University are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and get prepared for safe teaching and learning on campus.

All students and staff can get vaccinated in any Government-designated venues (e.g. Community Vaccination Centres). To provide more convenience, the University will arrange on campus the “Government’s COVID-19 Outreach Vaccination Service”.  Details are as follows:

  1. Enrollment Arrangement

    • All students and staff can enroll on-line via the Registration Attendance System (RAS) starting at 10 am, 23 Jun 2021 (Wednesday)
      System link:  https://webapp.itsc.cuhk.edu.hk/ras/restricted/eventlist?id=72
    • Staff living in staff quarters on campus can in addition enroll not more than three household members. Enrollment hotline: 3943 0378
    • Quotas will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Booking is required and no walk-in service will be provided
    • Every person can receive 2 boxes of surgical masks (50 masks each box) for each dose of vaccination
    • This service is provided only for persons who are Hong Kong identity card holders

Recent health data bears out COVID-19 vaccination as an effective measure both in personal protection and prevention of the spread of the virus. The University strongly encourages all staff to consider receiving the COVID-19 vaccination at the earliest opportunity. Vaccines against COVID-19 are an important tool to help us win in the fight.  One more jab means one more step ahead.  We count on your continued support. If University members have any enquiry about vaccination, please consult your family doctor.
