The schedule of the vaccination is as follows:

Before the vaccination, all officials and staff are required to complete a form containing their personal data and to pass a screening test performed by several medical staff as a preventative measure to detect potential health problems.
For the record, the purpose of screening is for early detection, including to ensure that those officials and staff have no signs or symptoms, have no fever above 37.5 degrees Celsius, and have no allergy to poultry/eggs. They should also not get any influenza vaccine in less than one year. (MAY / EN)
