Tachilek, 8 June
Public servants and their family members were vaccinated against COVID-19 pandemic by medical workers from the Township Department of Public Health in collaboration with GAD staff at Aung Myat Hall of Department of Public Health in the Town of Tachilek, Shan State (East) this morning.
Those who have been vaccinated two times for the COVID-19 in the last six months and aged 18 are eligible for the booster dose.
On the occasion, medical workers from the Township Department of Public Health monitored the body temperature and blood pressure of public servants and their family members before administering the vaccine to them and watched them for 30 minutes after giving the vaccine in line with COVID-19 health regulations set by Ministry of Health.
As booster doses can mitigate neutralizing antibody fading and help improve the protection against the severe outcome of the COVID-19, people who have not received booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine can receive the booster dose of the vaccine at the District People’s Hospital every Wednesday in Tachilek, according to an official from the Township GAD.—Kyaw Zayyar Linn(Tachilek)
