Save time, create the correct database

In vaccination, the use of technology, deployment of technology platforms and applications is very important.

This helps save time for people coming to inject, limiting the concentration of people at the injection facility at the same time, ensuring the distance to prevent epidemics. Each citizen will be issued with a QR code, so when you come to the injection, just scan the code very quickly, instead of having to declare documents which takes time.

Also through this application, injectors are provided with information about vaccination, notes as well as overall coordination measures.

In addition, the screening information (temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, medical history, medications being used…) of each injected person is also entered into each person’s electronic health book to help Compare symptoms after injection.

After the injection, if there are abnormal health symptoms, the vaccinated person can reflect through this application to be contacted by medical staff at the injection facilities for advice, guidance on examination and timely treatment. .

In addition, the Campaign Steering Committee can track: Number of people vaccinated at each injection facility, number of people who registered but did not come to inject, number of people who are not healthy enough to be vaccinated through medical examination. Screening, common symptoms after injection of each vaccine, number of cases of complications after injection… All are provided in real time for timely direction and treatment.

The application of technology in vaccination is also significant in promoting vaccine passports. A representative of the National Center for Technology for Covid-19 Prevention and Control said that Vietnam currently has a management system for vaccination against Covid-19 and will soon have a system to provide electronic vaccine certificates. “In the future, the number of vaccines will be more and more. In order to meet the requirements of management and opening of trade, these systems are very important”, the representative of the Center assessed.
