General public members wishing to receive Covidd-19 vaccines can do so for free-of-charge at the Chinese Foundation in Dongpaleab, Chanthabouly district, Vientiane.
The Ministry of Health in collaboration with Chinese associations in Vientiane launched a Covid-19 vaccination centre at the Chinese Foundation on May 17.
Mr Lang Savanvaly, Chairman of the Overseas Chinese Association to Laos said that vaccination is the best way to prevent Convid-19.
“Once vaccinated, it can protect the life and health of the vaccinated. It helps build up our immunity against the disease and prevent spreading the virus to other people. If we comply strictly with the PM’s order No 15 and the measures of the National Taskforce Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control, the ongoing outbreak of Covid-19 will disappear,” said Mr Lang. “Vaccination in the Lao PDR is the most convenient compared to other countries where vaccines are scarce because the Lao government has sourced enough vaccines and set up many vaccination centres for domestic residents and foreigners to be vaccinated.”
Covid-19 vaccination at the Chinese foundation is available from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
A total of 533,172 people across the country have received first doses of Covid-19 vaccine with over 90,400 people given second doses.
