Healthcare officials gave the second dose of COVID-19 vaccines to internally displaced persons over the age of 65 at the Kyauktalone IDP camp in Kyaukpyu, Rakhine State yesterday.
During the vaccination, staff from the General Administration Department made records for the vaccinated people.
Next, staff from the Kyaukpyu Township Public Health Department measured the body temperature before vaccination.
Vaccines were given systematically, and only those with normal conditions are vaccinated, officials said.
“For the first time, we vaccinated 12 people in the IDPs Camp on 4 August 2021. We want to vaccinate people over the age of 65, as well as those over the age of 18 in this camp.
“I would like to say thanks to the volunteers who assisted in the vaccination works. I would also like to thank the Head of State for providing us with these vaccines to prevent COVID-19 disease,” said U Ko Ko Aung, the second leader of the Kyauktalone IDPs camp. “I am a volunteer at the camp helping people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 disease. There was no dizziness during the first vaccination.
“The second dose of vaccination gives me more self-confidence. I would like to thank the health department staff who came to our IDPs camp and the government officials who arranged for the vaccination,” said Ma Yamin Thu, who is working as a volunteer at the IDP camp.
A total of 24 people have been vaccinated for the first time in the camp.
For the second time, a total of 21 people, 12 on 2 September and nine on 8 September were vaccinated, according to an official from the township public health department. — July Kyel (IPRD)/GNLM
