Civil servants in Nay Pyi Taw receive Covid-19 vaccines

UNION-LEVEL department staff and Nay Pyi Taw-level staff in Nay Pyi Taw Council Area yesterday received Covid-19 vaccines named Sinopharm at No. (3) Basic Education High School, Pobbathiri Township in Nay Pyi Taw

The Covid-19 vaccination started in the morning and was carried out by healthcare workers from 1000-bed Military Hospital No. 2, Nay Pyi Taw and five groups of 500 Union-level staff and 1,000 Nay Pyi Taw-level staff received vaccinations.

“I’m just happy to be vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus at a time when the outbreak is on the rise. People who have not been vaccinated are also encouraged to get vaccinated.

If we want to protect ourselves and our families, we need to be vaccinated. Once the disease is decreased, it will be able to improve the health, education and socio-economic life of people. We also hope that more Covid-19 vaccines will arrive in Myanmar soon,” said a staff member who came to inject the vaccination.

“We have been happy to hear that the Covid-19 vaccine will be given to us. I also reminded the staff around me to get vaccinated regularly. When the vaccine started today, everyone was brought in. I hope my family will get vaccinated soon. I hope the remaining people could get the vaccines as soon as possible. I plan to travel with my family one day when the world is free of epidemics. I think getting vaccinated today is a step in the right direction for my dream. We urge all people to be vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Daw Swe Win, a staff member.

Before being administered with the Covid-19 vaccines (Sinopharm), healthcare workers took body temperature measurements and blood pressure measurements. Vaccines were given only when the blood and body pressure plus health condition is normal, healthcare officials said.

Next, staff from the administration departments, healthcare departments and education departments carried out cleaning works throughout the school compound. —Aung Thant/GNLM
