Counties and districts in the city publish the information of vaccination sites via WeChat official accounts every day, allowing people to be vaccinated to choose based on their needs. On August 2nd, the city starts vaccinating teenagers aged 12-14 in the downtown area against COVID-19, according to the reporter. For those aged 12–14 who have no contraindications, their parents need to sign Informed Consent for COVID-19 Vaccination and bring their ID cards, household registration booklets to register personal information. It is noticed that the city has arranged centralized vaccination for adolescents aged between 15 and 17 years old. For example, the school-age students of Foreign Language School Attached to Anhui Normal University get vaccinated at the appointed time at Grand Plaza, which makes the vaccination more orderly and efficient.
Wuhu COVID-19 Prevention and Control Headquarters once again reminded the public that vaccination is the most economical and effective measure to prevent and contain the spread of COVID-19. For those who have not been vaccinated, please complete the injection as soon as possible according to the arrangement, making joint efforts to protect all people in the city from being infected. In addition, it is necessary to monitor personal health conditions, be aware of personal protection, and keep “three essentials for epidemic prevention” in mind: wearing masks, practicing social distancing and maintaining personal hygiene. In case you have fever, cough, diarrhea, fatigue, reduced sense of taste and smell, or any other abnormal symptoms, you should wear disposable surgical masks or respirators of grade KN95/N95 or above, and go to the nearest fever clinic in time. With the strict implementation of COVID-19 prevention and control measures, anyone entering indoor public places must make an appointment in a staggered manner, have their temperature checked, present a green QR code, wear a mask and stand behind the one-meter line. Please avoid gatherings or crowds, and stay far from crowded venues, especially poorly ventilated places.
