After receiving a 2nd dose, students and staff are encouraged to upload their information to their Electronic Health Record or our KS Vaccination Registry for employees.
Back to School is just a few weeks away! And we need your kōkua!
Our kula's vaccination rates are being used to determine what kinds of activities are possible next school year, and what kind of safety protocols need to be retained vs. replaced by vaccinations. Vaccinations give us a path to a return to pre-pandemic school life, including the sports, clubs, field trips, and events where we make the memories we treasure for the rest of our lives.
So it's important to upload your keiki's vaccination card if they have received all required doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and ask you to upload cards as soon as you are able to do so. If you already have, MAHALO NUI LOA!
Two important notes about uploading your vaccination card to the Mo'omō'ali Olakino Electronic Health Records (EHR) portal:
STEPS OF HOW TO UPDATE YOUR STUDENT'S VACCINATION STATUS
FOR FACULTY AND STAFF
The COVID-19 Response Team has set up a specific KS Employee Vaccination Registry to upload your information, which will provide a clearance email badge. Simply fill out the form and upload your card to be added to the secure registry.
We encourage all students, ʻohana, faculty, and staff to become fully vaccinated as soon as possible. For ʻohana where keiki are not age-eligible to receive the vaccine, we are encouraging all members of their household to get vaccinated to further reduce the risk and spread of the virus.
Upon reaching "fully vaccinated" status, students will:
As more and more of our kula become fully vaccinated, we are able to replace or modify some of the layered safety protocols currently in place, keeping health and safety as our priority and reducing the risk of spread of this virus. We will notify you as modifications are made, in alignment with the latest guidance from the CDC, and in compliance with any state or county mandates.
Once we have a clear understanding of our vaccination rates, both as a campus and within the larger Kamehameha Schools organization, we will share more information and what your ʻohana can expect in the new school year.
Vaccinations are regularly available in our community, but we don't know for how long, so be sure to take advantage of these opportunities now before resources are reallocated elsewhere.
