HCMC: Door-to-door vaccination for people in high-risk areas

Chủ nhật, 22/8/2021| 15:35

In ‘red zones’ (very high-risk area) and ‘orange zones’ (high-risk area), mobile vaccination teams will go to people's homes or organize injection sites inside or near the blockade zone.

This is one of the measures to control the Covid-19 epidemic and minimize the number of deaths.

In the apartment complex, vaccination sites can be held in the evening. The apartment management board will invite households on the same floor in turn to vaccinate against Covid-19.

Vaccination teams and support teams must be fully equipped with protective equipment and clothing.
