The vaccines have also been allocated to other provinces, cities, and 23 hospitals under the Health Ministry, the army, and the police.
245,000 doses have been given to central hospitals, of which Thong Nhat Hospital in HCMC received 24,000 doses, the Central Lung Hospital and the National Children’s Hospital each got 22,000 doses.
The Ministry of Health suggested that the recipients should work with the national expanded vaccination projects, the Central Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology, and the Pasteur Institute in Ho Chi Minh City to coordinate the amount of vaccine in case it is not used up or there is a need to use more.
