Hanoi is to launch its COVID-19 vaccination at Thanh Nhan Hospital today, with 8,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine delivered in the first inoculation drive. The vaccination campaign in the capital runs from today to March 18 across 30 districts.

AstraZeneca is one of three vaccines recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and has been used across over 50 countries and territories globally. The vaccine will be given to people over the age of 18, with 2 shots, spaced 12 weeks apart.

The municipal Department of Health has assigned the Hanoi Center for Disease Control to work out a detailed plan for COVID-19 vaccination to ensure the best possible safety.

Yesterday, Vietnam launched its COVID-19 vaccination drive, with around 377 medical workers in Ho Chi Minh City and northern Hai Duong province – the country’s current biggest pandemic hotspot being infected with AstraZeneca vaccines.

The vaccination is underway at the Central Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Hanoi, the HCM City Hospital for Tropical Diseases and two medical centres in Hai Duong.
