At the hand-over ceremony in Hanoi, Austrian Ambassador Hans-Peter Glanzer spoke highly of Vietnam’s major achievements in the national COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
Deputy Health Minister Do Xuan Tuyen thanked the Austrian Government, organisations and businesses for their support via projects supplying medical equipment in a bid to improve the quality of health care services in Vietnam.
He said the assistance is of great importance as Vietnam and Austria will celebrate the 50th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties next year.
Vietnam is exerting efforts to bolster vaccine coverage, including inoculation for children aged between 12 and 17, together with applying other preventive measures, Mr. Tuyen said.
