(VLU15/8/2021Ho Chi Minh City is accelerating the progress of vaccination for people. Along with medical staff and doctors, many Van Lang University's students put on protective suits and became volunteers to support vaccination points in the city.

The 4th outbreak in Ho Chi Minh City broke out with unforeseen developments, especially the appearance of the Delta variant, which had a strong impact on the entire economic and social activities of the city, causing negative consequences for public health. On August 3, at a press conference to provide information on the situation of COVID-19 epidemic in Ho Chi Minh City, Vice Chairman of Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee Duong Anh Duc said that the city officially entered the COVID-19 vaccination phase 6. This is a special injection for all people from 18 years old living in the city, expected to last until the end of August 2021. A lot of medical teams were mobilized to deploy for this activity. Along with the city's epidemic prevention and control, Van Lang University has accompanied Binh Thanh District, Go Vap District in the implementation of large-scale vaccination for people.

250 VLU students have registered to join the volunteer squad to support vaccination at many injection sites. Wearing a hot blue protective suit, working time starts from early morning until late at night, quick meals, short naps, but volunteers still maintain their fighting spirit: regulating and guiding medical declaration for people at vaccination sites; hand out screening checks; temperature check; attendance check, serial numbering for vaccination participants and support for data entry.

Therefore, I want to contribute a little bit of strength to help everyone defeat the pandemic. There are still many happy moments during the hard time.

Van Lang's youth, with the spirit of spreading love and dedication, demonstrates responsibility to the community and society in disease prevention and control.
