This is the fourth – and also the biggest shipment – from the deal AstraZeneca signed with the Vietnam Vaccine Joint Stock Company in December last year.
The Vietnamese vaccine company has agreed to sell their entire supply of this year to the Vietnamese health ministry on a not-for-profit basis.
To date, 1.9 million doses in the contracted amount have arrived in Vietnam.
AstraZeneca was the first vaccine to have obtained authorisation for emergency use in Vietnam.
Nearly 4.15 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered nationwide so far, with nearly 287.000 people receiving the full two doses./.
