2,445 COVID-19 patients have been given the all-clear, and the death toll remains at 35.
60,139 Vietnamese people have been given an AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine shot since the national COVID-19 vaccination campaign was launched on March 8, according to the Ministry of Health on Wednesday.
Among the first vaccinated people are healthcare workers, and members of anti-coronavirus community groups and the steering committees on COVID-19 prevention and control in 19 cities and provinces.
The Ministry of Health has received more than 800,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine sponsored by COVAX Facility after purchasing 117,600 doses of the same vaccine in February 2021. It is distributing the vaccine to localities to ensure priority groups can get the jab first.
