Nation receives additional 1.1 million AstraZeneca vaccine doses

VOV.VN - A further 1.1 million doses of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine arrived on August 13 at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City.

This marks the eighth batch to arrive in the country following a deal agreed between AstraZeneca and local company Vietnam Vaccine Company (VNVC) to supply the nation with 30 million COVID-19 vaccine doses.

At present, the country has received 20.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses, including roughly 9.2 million doses via the COVAX mechanism, over five million doses purchased through VNVC, one million Sinopharm doses, and more than 1.2 million Pfizer doses. The remaining 3.7 million vaccines have been donated by other nations.

The Ministry of Health stated that an additional 12 million COVID-19 doses will be delivered to the nation from various sources between August and September.

Most notably, a large batch of 4.7 million Pfizer doses will arrive in the country during the fourth quarter of the year.

With a number of signed contracts with vaccine manufacturers, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has requested that relevant units work with partners to deliver the vaccines to residents as soon as possible.
