HCMC administrator to strengthen communication on the benefits of vaccination | Health
The municipal people’s committee has just sent a document to city departments and organizations, neighborhood people’s committees and the city of Thu Duc on the promotion of vaccination against Covid-19.
Under the document, the Health Ministry was required to continue to maintain fixed and mobile injection sites every day of the week, including Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. Additionally, the health sector should send more medical staff to community injection sites.
Additionally, the health sector should guide localities to integrate Covid-19 vaccination with expanded immunization programs. In addition, the sector should monitor and evaluate the injection rate of each district, each educational institution, by each age group in order to propose appropriate intervention solutions. The Ministry of Education and Training should proactively propose the opening of more injection sites in schools to facilitate the vaccination of children. The vaccination rate will be added to each school’s emulation criteria.
Parents must be informed of the need for vaccination and oppose the anti-vaccination movement. The Department of Public Information and Communications is working with the health sector to launch a book to those who spread inaccurate information about the benefits of Covid-19 vaccination on social media platforms.
People’s committees of Thu Duc county and city will make a list of people who need to be vaccinated according to the regulations but who have not been vaccinated or received insufficient doses, especially people from the risk group, including those over 50 and those with underlying conditions. to encourage them to get vaccinated.
