There is also a choice of vaccines offered.   "Tens of millions of the jabs have been administered worldwide, and both vaccines are proven to be safe, efficacious and of good quality."   She added that the Department of Health has been working closely with its partners to provide regular updates on the latest epidemic situation and solicit their support and collaboration in promoting COVID-19 vaccination.   The department also accords great importance to the dissemination of important information to the EM community.   Health education materials are continuously translated into nine EM languages and made available online, while selected materials are also translated into French, Spanish, Punjabi and Tamil.
