The first mobile vaccination vehicle was put into service on the streets of Shigatse's Samdrutse district in the Tibet autonomous region on Monday.
The bus-like mobile vaccination center will offer convenience for residents in rural areas who require vaccinations, and will improve the efficiency of local vaccine distribution.
Jointly donated by the ninth group of Aid-Tibet cadres from Shandong province and QingDao Haier-Medical Co, the vehicle is designed to support use in the rugged Tibet Plateau region. It can be driven smoothly on rough roads, for example.
According to the district's health commission, about 60 percent of the population there have received vaccinations. It added that it's difficult to meet the vaccination needs of residents because of the inconvenience of traveling in the district's remote areas.
According to the commission, the mobile vaccination vehicle will serve schools, nursing homes and other places as it offers door-to-door vaccinations.
