The COVID-19 vaccine fund has been set up as part of efforts to receive voluntary financial and vaccine donations and assistance from organisations and individuals specifically for the procurement, import, domestic research, production, and provision of COVID-19 vaccines.
According to the Ministry of Health, the nation requires 150 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines at a cost of VND25.2 trillion, equivalent to US$1.1 billion, in order to inoculate the roughly 75 million people needed to reach herd immunity.
