JD Health to Offer COVID-19 Vaccine Information and Services
by Hui Zhang
JD Health announced the launch of a dynamic information platform on Dec. 28 to release vaccine-related news from all over the country, including the latest news on the development and availability of the COVID-19 vaccine. The platform will also offer convenient services such as vaccine Q&A, vaccine-related knowledge, and registration.
Consumers can simply type in the key words“新冠肺炎疫苗” （“COVID-19 vaccine”）in JD’s App or JD Health’s App to enter into the platform online. After consumers register their requests for COVID-19 through the platform and submit their information, they will be able to get first-hand local information, government official news and other pandemic-related knowledge from the platform.
According to China’s National Health Commission, COVID-19 vaccination will be carried out in two steps. The vaccines will be first given to key groups, including those engaged in handling imported cold-chain products, and people working in sectors such as port inspection and quarantine, aviation, public transport, fresh markets, medical treatment and disease control. With the approval of the vaccine on the market, or the gradual increase of vaccine production, more and more people will be eligible to receive the vaccine.
Since the pandemic outbreak this year, JD Health has been committed to providing safe and convenient services to the general public to alleviate the challenges of accessing health care during the pandemic. JD Health launched a series of service platforms including a free consultation platform for patients in other countries, a psychological consultation platform, a platform to help patients with chronic diseases maintain their drug supply, and more.
At the same time, JD Health is also the first platform in China to provide online appointment services for nucleic acid testing. With the launch of the dynamic information platform, JD Health will continue to provide timely, convenient and professional medical and health services to the public.
