Chairman of the Ba Vi Commune People's Committee Lang Van Ha said that his locality has focused on prevention measures. One of the important solutions is to vaccinate underprivileged people, including those of ethnic minorities.

Duong Trung Phong from Hop Nhat Village said that he was very happy because he was given priority to get a vaccine jab against the Covid-19.

"I totally support and will encourage relatives to strictly observe the regulations on the pandemic prevention and control," Phong said.

Not only in Ba Vi Commune, people in 13 other ethnic minority communes in Hanoi’s five districts of Ba Vi, Thach That, Quoc Oai, My Duc, and Chuong My have been also immunized with Covid-19 vaccines. A total of nearly 10,000 priority cases have been given Covid-19 vaccine injections.

During the social distancing period in accordance with the city's Directive No.17/CT-UBND, the municipal Committee for Ethnic Minority Affairs has been coordinating with the people's committees of the five districts to mobilize the participation of all sectors, especially prestigious people to strictly controlling the non-essential movement of ethnic people.

“Currently, vaccination is still the basic solution to prevent the Covid-19 disease. On the basis of the number of vaccines allocated by the municipal authorities, we will keep vaccinating prioritized people, especially ethnic minority groups," Director of the Ba Vi District Healthcare Center Nguyen Ba Minh told The Hanoi Times.
