Vaccinated driver measures set

Cross-boundary goods vehicle drivers who receive a message in the Yuekang Code system showing that they have received two vaccine doses after 14 days are not required to undergo a nucleic acid test once every day.   The Transport Department announced today that the measure will be effective from midnight tomorrow.   For those drivers who receive a message in the Yuekang Code system showing that they have received two vaccine doses after 14 days, when they enter Shenzhen and Zhuhai they are only required to possess proof of a negative nucleic acid test result conducted within 72 hours.   They can gain access through an ordinary immigration clearance area by scanning the Yuekang Code message directly and complete the clearance procedure.   For those drivers who have not been vaccinated, have not received two vaccine doses or have received two vaccine doses for less than 14 days or have not yet received a message on the Yuekang Code system, in addition to possessing proof of a negative result of a nucleic acid test conducted within 72 hours when entering Shenzhen and Zhuhai, they are required to undergo a nucleic acid test at the sampling collection point in Mainland control points when they first enter Shenzhen and Zhuhai daily.   As of yesterday, the system had completed the registration of more than 4,200 cross-boundary drivers.   Since the implementation of the vaccination programme, around 6,900 cross-boundary goods vehicle drivers have received the first vaccine dose and around 6,200 have received their second dose, representing 98% and nearly 90% of active drivers.
