Vaccines are the most powerful weapon to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Wuhu Municipal Health Commission calls on the public that those who are physically fit for injection should be vaccinated actively. Citizens are reminded that they should not ignore personal daily protection even though they are vaccinated. Remember to wear masks, wash hands and ventilate frequently, and keep one-meter social distancing, so as to make contributions to the epidemic prevention and control while protecting themselves.
