To fulfil the target of administering COVID-19 vaccines to all of foreigners living, studying and working in Hanoi, the capital city has instructed the medical centre of Nam Tu Liem district to prepare for the inoculation.

Accordingly, the centre has coordinated with the 115 Emergency Centre and Hanoi International Friendship Hospital JSC in the preparation work.

The vaccination has been carried out at the My Dinh National Stadium in My Dinh 1 ward, Nam Tu Liem district.

As of September 17, nearly 97 percent of people aged 18 years old and above in Ha Noi had received at least one shot of COVID-19 vaccines.

The municipal health department reported that the city registered 15 cases of COVID-19 on September 18 morning, including 14 at quarantine establishments and one in the community.

The community infection was found in Viet Hung ward, Long Bien district.

Since the fourth wave of the pandemic broke out in Viet Nam late April, Ha Noi recorded 3,901 cases, of which 1,597 cases were detected in the community.

According to Deputy Spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pham Thu Hang, the government views vaccinating foreigners as part of its drive to achieve herd immunity.

“The Vietnamese government supports foreigners living, studying, and working in Viet Nam, treating all in case of illness,” she said at a press briefing late last month in Ha Noi.
