Healthcare workers (including students in healthcare disciplines) should be immune to hepatitis B, measles, rubella and varicella (vaccine-preventable diseases), as to avoid causing harm to patients by taking reasonable precautions to prevent transmission of vaccine-preventable diseases.
In view of this, the Faculty of Medicine, CUHK has arranged blood test and vaccination services to the newly-admitted students of Chinese Medicine, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy Programmes. The blood test will check for any underlying health conditions or infections that may pose a risk to the student’s health or to others. The vaccination programme will then provide sufficient protection against common illnesses and vaccine-preventable diseases.
The blood test includes Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), Hepatitis B surface antibody (HBsAb), and Varicella (chickenpox) (VZV-IgG).
Students are advised to schedule an appointment for the blood test with this link or call AMG’s customer services hotline at +852 28560202 for an appointment.
Students should bring along their HKID card and CUHK student ID card (or any documents that can show your CUID, if you have not received the CUHK student ID card) for registration on your appointment date.
