BANGKOK, Oct 17 : Bangkok schools are getting ready to open for the second semester of this academic year, while 87 per cent of high-school students who registered have received their first Pfizer jab.

Khachit Chatchavanich, permanent secretary of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), said on Sunday that 33,048 of Bangkok’s 37,466 students aged between 12 and 18 have registered for vaccination against Covid-19.

Of them, 3,796 are high-school students and 87 per cent received their first Pfizer jab on October 4.

The remaining 29,252 students should receive their first jab next week.

As for unvaccinated school personnel, Khachit said they will be receiving the Sinovac-AstraZeneca vaccine cocktail.

He also pointed out that it is important for everybody receiving the jabs to pay close heed to guidelines and schools opening for the second semester should strictly follow all prevention measures.

“Teachers and parents should agree upon a new class schedule, while everybody in school should wear a face mask at all times and strictly practice social distancing.

Only 25 students are allowed to be inside the class at any given time. All classrooms and common areas must be sterilised regularly, more hand-washing stations set up and there should be screening points at every entrance.

Public health officers will also visit to assess the safety arrangements.

Khachit added that all establishments within a 10-metre range of schools should be Covid-proof. Any student or school personnel suspected of infection should be isolated and the 1646 hotline called immediately.
