Channel 8: Let's Get Vaccinated! 新传媒8频道:我们一起打疫苗!

行动不便的年长者可以联络关爱乐龄办事处 (1800 650 6060),安排在家中接种疫苗

2017年的时候,医生告诉我说我得了第四期的癌症。我的主治医生告诉我打疫苗对我好,虽然我是癌症病人。

我听了医生说打疫苗是对我有保护的。有保护这个词很重要。可以打疫苗的时候,我就决定上网去注册。

一些朋友在聊天群组里,有提到会有什么副作用,可是我只是打针的手有点不舒服而已。”

打疫苗前后的差别是比较安心,但是当然也要保持安全距离。安全措施照做,也要带好的口罩,也比较有勇气出门。

Please call Silver Generation Office at (1800 650 6060) to arrange for home vaccination services.

"In year 2017, the doctor told me that I had Stage 4 cancer. My doctor told me, that the vaccination is good for me, even though I was a cancer patient.

After consulting my doctor, I understood that the vaccination can protect my health. Being able to safeguard my health, it is important to me. I decided to register online to get the vaccination once I was able to.”

For myself, I do see messages and discussions about the side effects of the vaccination on some of my chat groups. For myself, I only had some discomfort on my arm after the vaccination.

In fact, taking vaccination is a protection for myself, and after taking the full vaccination I feel more reassured and more bold to venture outdoors. Of course, I still following the safety measurements, keeping myself at a safe distance from others, and wearing proper masks."

"The COVID-19 disease is very serious, and you can have difficulties breathing if you are infected with the virus, hence I quickly register to take my vaccination when it was available.

People asked me how was my vaccination, I told them when you press the position you had your injection there was slight pain, but if you do not press it you do not feel anything.

In fact, after three days I was fine, it was the same for my second injection." (translated from Chinese)
