180,000 people in GD receive COVID-19 vaccine
    2020-12-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    ABOUT 180,000 people in key groups in Guangdong, China’s most populous province, had received free COVID-19 vaccine shots by Tuesday, the provincial government said Wednesday.

    

    No serious side effects have been reported among the vaccine receivers, the Information Office of the People’s Government of Guangdong Province said at a press briefing in Guangzhou.

    

    The groups include workers involved in cold-chain import logistics, quarantine venues, customs and immigration inspection, cross-border transport, health care, front-line epidemic control and public transport, and those working or studying overseas.

    

    They are considered high-risk groups and more prone to infection. Their vaccination is meant to protect their health and help control the pandemic, Duan Yufei, director of the provincial health commission, said.

    

    Vaccinations will be expanded to the general public after the vaccines are officially launched and supply increases, he said.

    

    Even after the vaccines enter the market, the public should still exercise full epidemic control measures for a considerable period of time, he said.

    

    Guangdong remains a low-risk region and current measures have proved effective in controlling the epidemic, Duan said.    (Continued on P4)
