Nearly 47,000 people in Vietnam were vaccinated against Covid-19 on Friday, the record high daily figure for the country so far.
According to the Ministry of Health, to date, 176,037 people in Vietnam have been provided with Covid-19 vaccine, including up to 46,937 people in 26 cities and provinces on Friday alone.
The people are medical staff who are directly involved in Covid-19 prevention and control activities and people working in defence and security.
The Ministry of Health has issued a decision to guide the diagnosis and treatment of thrombocytopenia and coagulation after the Covid-19 vaccination. However, thrombocytopenia is a rare phenomenon and it is often found among women under 60.
Coagulation symptoms usually occur between 4 and 28 days after the vaccination, causing problems such as headaches, difficulty in breathing and stomach aches.
Associate. Prof. Dao Xuan Co, deputy director of Hanoi-based Bach Mai Hospital, said that the treatment of coagulation as a result of Covid-19 vaccination is similar to normal coagulation disorders.
Co advised people to not be concerned about the vaccination as coagulation rarely happens and can also be easily treated by doctors.
