The National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology is the importer of this vaccine batch.
More Covid-19 vaccine batches are expected to be brought to Vietnam from September as the country is speeding up vaccinations.
According to customs agencies, favourable conditions have been created to facilitate the clearance of Covid-19 vaccine batches. Most Covid-19 vaccines have arrived in Vietnam recently from Pfizer and AstraZeneca.
Currently, many cities and in Vietnam, including Hanoi, are temporarily short of the Moderna vaccine to give second shots. Some experts suggested using Pfizer to replace Moderna for the second jab. The Ministry of Health has considered the solution for this problem.
