Lotus Medical Center, the first cooperative facility of Vietnam and Poland, has been licensed for vaccination and is one of thousands of vaccination sites throughout Poland.

“Lotus Medical Center is very proud to be one of more than 6,000 COVID-19 vaccination sites in Poland. To obtain the license, the center had to pass the epidemiological tests, qualifications of the medical team, the doctor as well as the access and information processing of the main COVID-19 prevention and control system of the Polish government. Currently, the center is provided with Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine free of charge by the Polish Government to vaccinate the Vietnamese community and the natives,” said Mr. Tran Anh Tuan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Center and Chairman of the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Poland.

In recent years, the center has worked closely with the Community Supporting Committee for the COVID-19 Prevention and Control of the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Poland, effectively assisted in testing, counseled on disease prevention and control, as well as treated thousands of Vietnamese people and local residents.

According to Mr. Tran Anh Tuan, Lotus Medical Center has a team of experienced Polish doctors, who are ready to handle any sudden situations that may occur. The vaccination there is very convenient for Vietnamese, especially those who are not fluent in Polish. Vietnamese people who register for vaccination are provided medical examination consultation and vaccination with free Vietnamese translation support.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh, a Vietnamese living in Poland, shared that she feels satisfied because she enjoys the same preferential regimes as the Polish people.

Currently, the center is vaccinating people aged 70 or over from January 27 (the list is registered in advance), according to the guidance of medical staff in declaring records, with translation to serve medical examination before vaccination with a dedicated service attitude and completely free.

However, currently the number of vaccines that the center receives is limited. It is expected that in March, there will be more vaccines received to increase the number of people vaccinated at Lotus Health Center./.
