Labour Confederation proposes prioritising workers in Covid-19 vaccinations

Vice President of the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) Tran Van Thuat said on May 25 that workers at businesses and industrial parks should be included in the priority list for Covid-19 vaccinations.

Thuat suggested the Ministry of Health's Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control consider the proposal and raise it with the Government for approval.

Workers at businesses and industrial parks should be included in the priority list for Covid-19 vaccinations.

On behalf of the VGCL Presidium, Thuat handed over VND500 million (US$21,750) to the committee in support of the pandemic fight.

He cited reports from all-level trade unions as saying that since April 27, when the fourth wave of the pandemic started in Vietnam, nearly 1,100 infections and tens of thousands of "F1" cases have been reported among trade union members and workers.

The pandemic has also forced many enterprises to shut down and rendered a large number of employees jobless, he added.

To support pandemic-affected trade union members and workers, the VGCL has adopted support policies and instructed all-level trade unions to visit them and present gifts, according to the official.

Deputy Minister of Health Do Xuan Tuyen said his ministry has sent forces to the northern provinces of Bac Ninh and Bac Giang, which have both recorded many Covid-19 cases at industrial parks over recent days.
