The health ministry is working on immunization guidelines to start vaccinating adolescents against Covid-19 within this month.
Vietnam is striving to inject two Covid-19 vaccine doses for 95% of 8.1 million adolescents from 12 to 17 years old in the fourth quarter of 2021, according to the Ministry of Health (MoH).
Vietnam targets that more than 70% of its population aged 18 years and older will receive one shot of the Covid-19 vaccine by late 2021. Over 57 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been injected to people aged 18 years old and above across the country so far. Over 39 million people, or 54% of the total adults, have received the first shots, and 16 others, or over 22%, have been fully vaccinated with two shots.
