HCMC – The HCMC Center for Disease Control (HCDC) received 300,720 doses of the Spikevax/Moderna Covid-19 vaccine to serve its booster shot campaign, said the HCMC health authority.
The batch was among over two million doses of the vaccine that the COVAX Facility donated to centers for disease control across Vietnam through the Health Ministry.
The ministry asked the provinces and cities to use the vaccine effectively before January 31 this year, as the vaccine had been thawed since January 1.
Le Hong Nga, deputy head of HCDC, said yesterday, January 13, that HCDC allocated all 300,720 doses to medical centers across districts and Thu Duc City.
As of yesterday, HCMC had administered around 19 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines to local people.
