The helicopter carrying COVID-19 vaccines lands on Con Dao Airport.

It is the third time the company has used its helicopters to transport COVID-19 vaccines and necessities to the island district.

As planned by the Con Dao district People’s Committee, in the third phase of COVID-19 vaccination, nearly 1,500 people will be vaccinated against the coronavirus from August 2 to 11 at the district's Civilian-Military Medical Center.

The Southern Vietnam Helicopter Company has transported COVID-19 vaccines to Con Dao district twice.

Previously, the district conducted two phases of COVID-19 vaccination for prioritized groups in line with the Government’s Resolution No.21 from May to June 2021.

The district aims to vaccinate 70% of its residents to attain herd immunity.

Up to now, Con Dao district has not recorded any COVID-19 cases in the community.
