During the vaccination process, all staff members were thoroughly informed about possible side effects after getting a Covid-19 vaccine for timely preparation and response. As a result, aside from the common side effects such as flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, and muscle aches, everyone’s health is stable and they can resume normal activities after 1-2 days of vaccination.

Thus, by completing injections, Oxalis employees have contributed to enhanced “immune-boosting” protection against Covid-19 and are eligible to organize tours. Therefore, it is safe to welcome visitors to join the upcoming cave expeditions.

Oxalis would love to express its gratitude to the provincial leadership, local governments, and the health and tourism industries for giving us timely and rapid access to vaccines. Oxalis will make additional efforts to help the local tourism industry’s robust recovery after the pandemic and to bring visitors closer to the natural marvels of Quang Binh’s lovely region.
