On March 28, Beihang University started vaccinating its faculty and staff over 60, community residents, teachers and students from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and international teachers and students. Up to now, more than 700 retired faculty and staff over 60 as well as 23,000 students have been inoculated with the COVID-19 vaccine.
On the vaccination spots, a separate queuing channel for retired faculty and staff over 60 was set up, and the medical staff measured their blood pressure before giving out the jabs. The smooth and efficient process of vaccine rollout in Beihang University has impressed Wang Hesheng, Head of Haidian District, Li Jingtao, Director of Haidian District Health Commission, and other officials in a site research accompanied by Cheng Bo, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of Beihang University.
Beihang University started the vaccination process on February 22, becoming the first university in Beijing to launch the large-scale vaccination for teachers and students. The university responded quickly to the notification issued on March 26 that citizens from Hongkong, Macao and Taiwan as well as foreign residents in China should also get vaccinated, and has so far deployed various vaccination links and completed works concerning personnel arrangement and registration.
