The vaccines were given to the targeted groups of frontline workers, the elderly, religious persons, volunteers who are participating in the COVID-19 prevention, control and treatment activities, and staff from private industries and workplaces.
A total of 4,066 COVID-19 vaccines were administered yesterday, with a process for screening for contraindications and precautions in place, and information issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports for the people to receive the vaccines was also available at the vaccination areas. In addition, the Myanmar Police Force provided security for the safety of the people.
The COVID-19 vaccination is scheduled from 1 to 4 August and will continue to be given to priority groups, although the vaccination period is determined by the population census in each township and the available quotas.
The Ministry of Health and Sports is implementing the COVID-19 vaccination drive to reduce the incidence and mortality of COVID-19 in Myanmar as well as to prevent the spread of the disease and reduce impacts on the country’s economy due to the outbreak. — MNA
