April 25th is the National Children’s Vaccination Day. The reporter learned from the National Children’s Vaccination Day activities that our province has established about 1,500 vaccination clinics throughout urban and rural areas, providing 20 million doses of routine vaccination per year for children. For more than 20 years, the reported vaccination rate has been above 95% in the immunization program for school-age children in the province.

Zhejiang Province has always attached great importance to vaccination, and took the lead in the country to standardize vaccination clinics, providing high-quality and efficient vaccination services in accordance with unified standards and procedures. Through extensive vaccination, infectious diseases such as polio, diphtheria, measles, whooping cough, Japanese encephalitis and meningococcal meningitis that once ravaged and seriously endangered children's health have been effectively controlled.

In order to promote vaccination for Covid-19, the health departments at all levels in our province provide vaccination services according to the principle of proximity and efficiency; Combining enterprise arrangements with individual appointments, they will provide vaccination services in an orderly manner based on vaccine supply; Taking the advantages of the digital reform to optimize the vaccination process, they provide Internet platforms such as the "Zheliban Office" to offer self-service filing and vaccination appointment, so as to improve the accuracy of information registration and reduce the outpatient queuing time.

On the same day, the Provincial Center for Disease Control and the Provincial Health Promotion and Education Association issued health promotion activities on two subway trains, with the themes of "Vaccination, a Lifetime Gift for Health" and "Vaccination watches over your health".
