Govt pushes to vaccinate kids aged 5-11 against Covid


The government issued a resolution Friday urging the Health Ministry to quickly buy Covid-19 vaccines for children aged 5 to 11.

The resolution ordered cities and provinces to quicken vaccination for children against Covid-19, and finish giving booster shots to people from 18 years old.

The government also pledged to simplify the procedures for the production of domestic vaccines and give the health ministry a more active role over matters regarding the import and production of Covid-19 drugs.

Vietnam started vaccinating children from 12 years old from late last year while the health and education ministries had received orders from PM Pham Minh Chinh a month ago to research international experience in vaccination children from 5-11.

The plan has received mixed responses domestically. A survey on VnExpress over the past month received more than 140,000 responses, with 68 percent objecting to vaccination for children in the age group.

More than 20 countries including Canada, Cuba, Italy, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. have vaccinated children 5-11 against Covid-19.
