By Friday morning, Vietnam had administered more than 16.3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine across the country.

The Health Ministry said a document has been made on the expected vaccine distribution from now until the end of this year and asked localities to accelerate vaccinations.

At immunization stations, it is necessary to involve members of mass organizations, especially youth union members to help the reception, medical declarations, and registration for vaccination and enter data into a vaccination software.

Medical workers focus on professional tasks – pre-injection screening, vaccine administration, and post-injection monitoring.
