According to the Health Commission of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Guangxi has started COVID-19 vaccination for the latter half of the year. The focus groups to be vaccinated are "the elderly and the young", namely people over 60 years old, aged 12-17 and not fully vaccinated.
Deng Qiuyun, deputy director of the Institution of Immunization Program, Guangxi Center for Disease Control and Prevention, warned that compared with young people, the elderly over 60 years old are more vulnerable to severe cases and health damage after being infected by COVID-19. Vaccination is the most economic and effective way of protection. Prior to vaccination, the medical staff will communicate with vaccine receivers and their families, inquire and record in detail their chronic diseases, drug use and food and drug allergies to fully assess the health status of the elderly and the risk of infection and vaccinate those over 60 years old in good physical conditions.
