Virtual concert calls for donations for COVID-19 vaccine fund

VOV.VN - An international virtual concert connecting Vietnam with the world will be broadcast live on VTV1 channel on June 27 as part of calls for people to donate to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine fund.

The concert will be directed by talented conductor Le Phi Phi from the EU and will feature the participation of elite artist Vuong Thach from the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO), along with several other renowned artists.

Viewers will be encouraged to send their donations via the website https://www.quyvacxincovid19.gov.vn, or to the bank accounts stated by the organisers during the concert.

Donors can also send the message “COVID NK” by text to 1408 in order to donate to the fund. They will then receive a virtual certificate for their donations.

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.
