Previously, the municipal Department of Industry and Trade had requested the Department of Health to prioritize vaccinating around 62,000 shippers in Ho Chi Minh city during its social distancing period.

After having their body temperatures checked and hands sanitized, shippers filled out personal information forms prior to vaccination.

Nguyen Hai Van, an official who oversaw the vaccination session at Pham Van Hai school, said around 150 shippers were vaccinated within the day, according to VnExpress.

Half a month after he signed up for vaccination, Vo Nghe Ky, 24, got a text to inform him of his time and place for vaccination.

"These past few months when the new coronavirus wave broke out, I went out to work worried and anxious as I made contact with many people. After getting vaccinated, I would stay off work for two days to recover," he said.
