PLAN

LAUNCHING OF COVID-19 VACCINATION CAMPAIGN FOR 2021-2022

(Enclosed with Decision No. 3355/QD-BYT dated 08/7/2021 by Minister of Health)

COVID-19 vaccination is a crucial solution for the fight against COVID-19 and socio-economic development. Other countries around the world have launched the largest vaccination program in history[1].

In Vietnam, the Ministry of Health has approached vaccine sources via different channels such as directly discussing with vaccine manufacturers, international organizations, embassies in Vietnam and Vietnam’s ambassadors in other countries. So far, 105 million doses from different sources have been secured for Vietnam[2].

Vietnam strives to achieve herd immunity by the end of 2021 or the start of 2022 with approximately 70% of Vietnam’s population vaccinated. To reach this target and as a large amount of vaccines will arrive in Vietnam soon, we need to launch the largest national vaccination campaign in history with the participation of healthcare, military and police forces and ministries. This vaccination campaign must take place concurrently in vaccination facilities nationwide, including public and private facilities, units affiliated and unaffiliated with the healthcare sector, etc.

For launching of the largest vaccination campaign in history involving all forces and citizens and using vaccines provided by multiple sources in large quantity and with different storage conditions, the Ministry of Health has formulated a plan for launching of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign on the basis of Vietnam’s situation and estimated vaccine provision capacity.
