The second phase, which will last from September  一 六 to  三0, will provide the remaining  一0 per cent of adults (around  七 二0,000 people) with their first shot. As many as  六 五 六,000 people will receive their second shot.

More than  八. 一 million doses of COVID- 一 九 vaccines from various brands are needed in the city until the end of the year, with over  六. 七 million of them to be used for the second shot.

Apart from vaccines received from the Ministry of Health, the city’s Department of Health is also working with a number of organisations to help the city buy more vaccines.

HCM City has told district authorities to make full use of local vaccination sites, carry out mobile-vaccination trips, and deploy rapid-testing teams to test residents prior to vaccinations.

Local authorities have also been asked to compile lists of residents who have already received their first shots so that vaccines can be properly allocated.

As of the end of August,  六. 一 million people aged  一 八 and older had received their first shot, and  二 七 三,000 adults had received their second shot. There are  七. 二 million adults in the city.

HCM City, the country's COVID- 一 九 epicentre, has recorded over  二 一 五,000 positive cases since late April when the fourth wave began. – VNS
