On March 10, Dr

.

Zhang Wenhong, director of infection department of Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, Yu Qingming, chairman of Sinopharm holdings, and Wang zezhen, assistant general manager of Wuhan Institute of biological products, responded to these hot issues in an interview

.

When can I take off the mask? There are two conditions to be met: first, mass vaccination has been basically completed in China; second, the international epidemic situation has dropped to a very low level

.

At this time, it will not be mandatory to wear masks

.

But it will be very difficult to take off the mask at the end of this year, he pointed out

.

Because China has not yet completed the vaccination of group immunity, and the international epidemic is still spreading, the requirement of mask for protection always exists

.

Under the condition that both “vaccination” and “international epidemic situation” meet the requirements, the trend of removing masks may be seen in the second half of next year

.

Why vaccinate? Young people’s vaccination is their contribution to the family and the country

.

At this stage, young people’s own vaccination is their contribution to the family and the country

.

“Because our population immunity is gradually achieved, we actually have enough time to achieve it before the door of the country is opened.” Zhang Wenhong said that China’s vaccine transportation is convenient and safe, which is very conducive to universal vaccination

.

What’s the best time to get vaccinated? The best time for vaccination is this year

.

It is expected that the world will be reopened from the end of this year or early next year

.

Before that, we urgently need to complete vaccination to cope with imported risks

.

Zhang Wenhong suggested that the vaccine should be given this year and as soon as possible, because as time goes on, vaccination may be crowded

.

How about the vaccination of the elderly? Aiming at the problem of vaccination for the elderly, Wang zezhen, assistant to the general manager of Wuhan Institute of biological products, said that the two inactivated vaccines approved by Sinopharm were suitable for people over 18 years old when they were approved, that is to say, people over 60 years old can use them

.

According to the national medicine data, the oldest vaccinator is close to 100 years old

.

Meanwhile, Yu Qingming, deputy to the National People’s Congress and chairman of Sinopharm holdings, said that Sinopharm’s vaccine production is expected to exceed 1 billion doses in the second half of this year and will reach 3 billion doses next year

.

According to this data, next year, only the vaccine production of Sinopharm group will meet the national vaccination demand
