Shenzhen: Set up a green channel to maximize the convenience of vaccination for the elderly

On November 30, Shenzhen held a press conference on epidemic prevention and control. Li Xiaoheng, deputy director of the Shenzhen Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said that the current situation of epidemic prevention and control is still complicated, and vaccination has a good effect in preventing severe illness and death. Elderly people over the age of 60 are at risk of severe illness after being infected with the new coronavirus, and elderly people over 80 are even more at high risk of severe illness.

As the elderly are older, their immune systems are weakened, their resistance is weak, and they may even be superimposed on one or more underlying diseases or chronic diseases. Once infected with the virus, the risk of severe illness and death may be greatly increased. Therefore, it is necessary to speed up the vaccination of the new crown virus, especially for the elderly, it is best to actively complete the vaccination as soon as possible to protect the health of themselves and their families.

In order to further strengthen the vaccination work for the elderly, Shenzhen is advancing in accordance with the unified deployment of the country and the province, from the aspects of improving the mechanism, thoroughly investigating, optimizing services, and increasing publicity. And other measures to maximize the convenience of vaccination for the elderly. I also hope that elderly friends, especially those over 80 years old, will take the initiative to get vaccinated to protect their personal health.
