A national vaccination information management system is launched

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam, Deputy Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long and Viettel Group have launched a national vaccination information management system.

Addressing the launching ceremony, Deputy PM Dam said the system, jointly developed by domestic and international health experts from the World Health Organization, is applied in all grassroots-level medical stations, covering vaccination management and people's health monitoring. The government has instructed the Health Ministry to update people's personal and health information available in the database of the Vietnam Social Insurance Agency into the system. He requested the health sector and localities to actively and continuously deploy the system in all health facilities at all levels. Dam also called on software developers to join the programme, saying that numerous applications are needed to manage the data on people's health.
