COVID vaccination programmes are underway with added momentum under the State Administration Council’s management.

COVID-19 prevention, control, and treatment activities are being conducted across the nation under the State Administration Council’s management.
The country received a total of 3.5 million COVID-19 vaccines — 1.5 million in the first tranche and 2 million in the second one, including foreign countries’ donations.
More than 1 million people receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and about 40,000 get the second dose to date.
The healthcare workers and volunteers were prioritized for vaccination, followed by the government employees, private healthcare staff, private industry staff (banking, transport and hotels and tourism), venerable Sayadaws and the people over 60.
The medics and nurses of the Ministry of Defence, staff and healthcare workers of Ministry of Health and Sports and volunteers of Transport and Communications and officials of Region/State Administration Councils participated in vaccination programmes.
Those who received the vaccine did not suffer from any side effects. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine can help people from getting the disease, and it can also ease the travel restrictions.
The Ministry of Health and Sports will use the first doses of 1.5 million vaccines, and it also has enough vaccine for the second dose. Moreover, arrangements are being made to receive more vaccines for the people. — MNA
