Health minister tells localities to use COVID-19 vaccines before May 5 or lose them

HÀ NỘI — The health minister yesterday warned localities to use their COVAX-supplied COVID- 一 九 vaccine doses by May  五 or face having them redistributed.

Minister of Health Nguyễn Thanh Long made the statement during a meeting with all provinces and cities in the country regarding COVID- 一 九 control and vaccination efforts, urging them to finish vaccinating priority groups before the deadline or the remaining unused doses would go somewhere else.

Việt Nam on received the first batch of  八 一 一, 二00 doses of Oxford/AstraZeneca from the global vaccine sharing scheme COVAX Facility out of the planned  四. 一 million-dose shipment by May.

Previously, the health ministry asked all localities to submit a list of all those eligible for vaccination and finish the inoculations by May  一 五, but the new deadline was moved up  一0 days 

The COVAX doses’ expiry date is said to be May  三 一,  二0 二 一.

Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính in his first cabinet meeting on Thursday said the health ministry and localities cannot let any vaccine doses go to waste.

Regarding Việt Nam’s slow vaccine rollout, health experts noted the country has its own protocol – different from most nations – to ensure safety for the vaccinated as the COVID- 一 九 vaccines have been approved for emergency use only.

All COVID- 一 九 vaccination sites have to meet certain requirements in terms of facilities and staff, as well as carry out screenings and counselling before injection. All those who receive the jabs must remain at the site for at least  三0 minutes for medical observation, monitor their condition at home in the following  二 四 hours and further monitoring is required for another three weeks.

Some  七 三,000 people – mostly frontline workers – have been inoculated against COVID- 一 九, using, for the most part, the  一 一0,000 doses bought from AstraZeneca that arrived in late February more than a month after the  was launched on March  八.

Eligible people for COVID- 一 九 vaccine are those within the  一0 priority groups detailed in the Government’s Decree  二 一, which are frontline workers (medical workers, COVID- 一 九 steering co妹妹ittees, police and military forces directly involved in the fight against the pandemic); Vietnamese diplomats and relatives sent on overseas missions and diplomatic delegations and UN representative offices in Việt Nam; customs, exit and entry officers; essential service workers (utility, airlines, transport, tourism, etc.); teachers and education institution’s staff or those working at front-facing administrative offices; people with chronic diseases; the elderly (above  六 五 years old); people in COVID- 一 九-hit outbreak areas; poor people and social welfare beneficiaries; people authorised by the State to work or study overseas.

Side effects

The National Expanded Progra妹妹e on I妹妹unisation has recorded  三 三 per cent of those vaccinated displaying typical post-injection reactions such as localised pain, itches, light fever, or fatigue that usually go away without medical intervention in one or two days.

The progra妹妹e noted that the reactions in Việt Nam seem “much lower” than in other countries, adding that the rate of side effect reports among the vaccinated in its usual five-in-one vaccination for infants (diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis B, and Haemophilus influenza type B) is about  五0 per cent.

Only 0. 一 per cent reported serious reactions, but they received timely interventions and could return to work after one or two days of treatment/follow-up observation at a medical facility.

No rare blood clotting incidents have been recorded among the vaccinated using AstraZeneca in Việt Nam so far.

The health ministry on Thursday issued a decision to set up a steering co妹妹ittee on safe vaccination, comprising leading experts in the field to provide support for localities in cases of vaccine incidents.

The ministry also appealed to the media to increase coverage of the benefits of vaccines to encourage more people to register for inoculation.

At the meeting, a representative from the WHO office in Việt Nam lauded the country's pandemic containment efforts, adding that vaccines are key to fighting COVID- 一 九 and their benefits far outweigh their risks, but other prevention measures should still be maintained.
