Vietnam to receive COVID-19 vaccines from Poland
The Polish government will transfer COVID-19 vaccines to Viet Nam based on non-profit principles.

The vaccine-related issue will be one of the topics during the reception between Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and the Polish Ambassador to Viet Nam Wojciech Gerwel scheduled for August 17, Ambassador to Poland Nguyen Hung said.

An initiative by the Polish-Vietnamese Parliamentary Group and the Poland-Viet Nam Friendship Association, with the support from Polish Ambassador to Viet Nam Wojciech Gerwel and Vietnamese Ambassador to Poland Nguyen Hung, proposed the transfer of COVID-19 vaccines from Poland's leftover vaccines to Viet Nam.

In addition, the Embassy of Poland in Viet Nam will receive about 1,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines to be administered for its Polish staff as well as citizens who are living in Viet Nam.

During a working session of Dworczyk, Hung and representatives of the Polish-Vietnamese Parliamentary Group and the Friendship Association, participants voiced a hope that Poland will further assist Viet Nam in the COVID-19 fight and more agreements will be reached to send other batches of Poland's remaining vaccines to Viet Nam.

Viet Nam is a strategic partner of Poland in Southeast Asia. Dozens of thousands of overseas Vietnamese are living in Poland and hundreds of Polish are in Viet Nam.
