3 million more doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to arrive in Vietnam this week

(VOVWORLD) – Vietnam is expected to receive additional 3 million doses of Moderna vaccine this week. The vaccine is donated by the US government through COVAX facility.

Vietnam will also get 100,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine from the Romanian government in the near future and is asking the Chinese Government for non-refundable aid of 5 million doses of Sinopharm vaccine.

The Ministry of Health said on Monday that Pfizer has agreed to increase its COVID-19 vaccine supply to Vietnam in the third quarter from 3 million to 3.5 million doses and pledged an additional 20 million doses this year. This will bring the total number of Pfizer vaccine doses to be sold to Vietnam to 51 million doses, up 20 million doses compared to the plan.

As a result, Vietnam is expected to have 175 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine this year and early next year.

More than 26 million doses of vaccines will arrive in Vietnam in the third quarter and another 65 million doses in the fourth quarter.

The country has so far administered 4.3 million doses.
