HCMC – The Ministry of Health has asked provinces to stop vaccinating people aged below 18 against Covid-19 and the mix and match of Covid-19 vaccines that goes against the ministry’s guidance.
For example, Can Tho has administered Covid-19 vaccines to 57 children aged from 12 to 17, the local media reported.

In addition, the Ministry of Health has allowed the mixing and matching of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines and of AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines.
Units violating regulations and guidance will be suspended and dealt with in line with the law.
