Mr. Pham Xuan Thang, Member of the Party Central Committee, Secretary of the Party Committee of Hai Duong province, Chairman of the provincial People’s Council, on May 31 afternoon presided over a regular meeting of standing members of the provincial Party Committee.

The standing members of the provincial Party Committee heard the provincial Steering Board for Covid-19 Prevention and Control report on results of the first and second phases of Covid-19 vaccination and its plan to implement the third phase.

Concluding the issue, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Pham Xuan Thang acknowledged the health sector’s efforts in implementation, good screening, and timely handling of reaction cases after Covid-19 vaccination.

The Secretary of the provincial Party Committee required those having been immunized with AstraZeneca vaccine to be prioritized to receive the second shots to maximize the effectiveness.

Priority will continue to be given to administering the first shots to frontline forces in the fight against the epidemic, those working for medical facilities or staying in quarantine and locked-down areas and places at high risk of infection, and essential service providers frequently contacting many people.

The Secretary of the provincial Party Committee stressed that vaccination sites must fully meet technical requirements, screening must be well done, and quick response teams must be established to handle post-injection reactions and ensure safe and effective vaccination.

Response teams will be set up by district medical centers, methodically trained, and fully equipped with necessary means and medicine.

Provincial medical facilities should be prepared and prioritize first aid and treatment of serious post-injection reactions.

Sectors and local authorities shoud intensify propaganda for people to be properly aware of the importance of vaccination in Covid-19 prevention and control.

Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Pham Xuan Thang attested that Hai Duong must be really proactive and strive to be one of localities fulfilling vaccination targets to facilitate socio-economic development.

The standing members of the provincial Party Committee assigned the provincial People’s Committee to proactively arrange funds and approach good vaccine supply sources for the province to soon implement and accomplish the goal of buying and administering vaccines to one million adults.

Fatherland Front Committees at all levels and the entire political system in the province should continue to mobilize all people to fund the purchase of Covid-19 vaccines to reduce the burden on the budget.

When there are vaccines, the provincial Steering Board for Covid-19 Prevention and Control must work out a specific plan and clearly define a financial mechanism and priority order to organize vaccination.
