STUDENTS VACCINATION

by Daniel Effendi Bin Amrizal -

As healthcare educators, we have and always prioritize the wellbeing and safety of our students. Therefore, the right education on mitigating risk factors and the need to adhere strictly to the SOPs set by respective health organisation has been top of our agenda since the outbreak of the Covid-19. Constant reminders and advisories have been shared with students to take the required necessary precautionary measures such as wearing of PPE, regularly hand washing, etc when managing patients.

 However, as seen in the current rise of cases, sporadic cases of Covid-19 is within the community itself. As such, it is very necessary for everyone, not only healthcare professionals, to be socially responsible and adhere to strict SOPs when they are out in public be it in their own institution or organisation or public spaces in order to safeguard themselves, family and friends.

 On the matter of vaccination for students, since February 2021, the International Medical College (IMC) together with the International Medical University (IMU), have made a concerted effort and worked actively to reach out to various governing authorities including but not limited to,

  1. the Ministry of Health (MOH), Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE),
  1. Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (MAPCU),
  1. the Vice-Chancellor’s Council,
  1. Lembaga Jururawat Malaysia as well as the
  1. Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre

to request for Medical / Dental / Nursing / Health Sciences Students who undergo their practical in Hospitals, Clinics and other Healthcare facilities as frontliners to be included in the priority list for vaccination; as they (students) are equally treating and managing the patients’ wellbeing in the healthcare settings.

It is our pleasure to note, on 20 May 2021, the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) has informed the respective IPTS that the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) will commence vaccination for Medical and Dental Students in Klang Valley and Selangor starting 22 May 2021.

We are following up closely with the respective ministries and governing authorities on the vaccination roll-out for nursing / health sciences/complementary medicine students. Students are to ensure they register for the vaccination and monitor the alert that will be sent via their MySejahtera App.
