NDO – According to the Ministry of Health, a large number of COVID-19 vaccines will arrive in Vietnam from now until the end of 2021; therefore, localities should prepare the human resources, infrastructure and essential conditions necessary to speed vaccination coverage, towards controlling the pandemic as soon as possible and safely adapting to the epidemic.
According to a report by the Department of Preventive Medicine and National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology, as of October 10, Vietnam had received over 87 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine and conducted 57 distributions with a total of 81.7 million doses t, including 21.5 million in the past seven days. By October 12, more than 56.3 million doses of vaccine had been administered to people aged 18 years and older, with nearly 16.5 million people now fully inoculated and nearly 40 million receiving their first shot.
The National Expanded Programme for Immunisation has been also developing documents related to training in the vaccination against COVID-19 for children. The specialised agencies have been discussing the methods of vaccination (in schools or localities) for children. The Ministry of Health will soon issue guidelines on COVID-19 vaccination for children and adolescents aged 12-18 years so that vaccines will be administered as soon as available.
