The officials of Mandalay Region completed the first COVID vaccination processes as per the target populations and priority groups and conducted the second vaccination programmes for those over the age of 65 in Aungmyaythazan Township yesterday.
The health workers launched the first COVID vaccine shots for people over the age of 65 starting 25 July while the second injection at respective vaccination gathering points in Aungmyaythazan Township was yesterday.
Daw Ei Mon Htwe, staff nurse said, “We vaccinate the second COVID-19 vaccine dose to the people over the age of 65, who received the first jab on 25, 26 and 27 July in Aungmyaythazan Township, at four gathering points. Those who became sick or lost sense of smell after getting vaccinated won’t get the second injection today. People should get vaccinated. During the high infection rate, if the people get the vaccines, they are immune to the disease. Moreover, those with diabetes, heart disease and hypertension are also more resistant to the disease if they are vaccinated.”
Moreover, U Aye Cho who received the second jab in East Amara Htani Ward said, “I get my second dose for COVID-19 vaccine. I want to thank the government and health workers for the free vaccines. I also pray for our people that they may be free from the COVID-19 pandemic and may live in good health and prosperity.” Before the vaccination, the health workers check the body temperature, blood pressure and blood oxygen level and vaccinate those who are in normal condition.
Moreover, the officials arrange the halls for the people to take a 30 minutes rest after vaccination and prepare the necessary health care services in case of sudden illness. The health officials will also conduct the vaccination programmes for the remaining target populations and priority groups as planned. —Maung Aye Chan/GNLM
