National immunisation management platform enables online registration for COVID-19 vaccination

Military-run telecom group Viettel on July 9 said the COVID-19 immunisation management platform, designated to serve the mass inoculation nationwide, is now ready for use.

The platform comprises four systems – an e-health record application, a portal for COVID-19 immunisation information, a system supporting national vaccination, and an MCC centre, with its database to be managed centrally and transparently.

People can register to get COVID-19 vaccine and track the vaccination record via the e-health record application and immunisation information portal.

The platform is expected to help speed up the nationwide vaccination campaign; increase its safety, effectiveness and transparency; and support the management, supervision and study of COVID-19 vaccination in Vietnam.

Before working on the platform, Viettel has operated a national immunisation system connecting about 14,000 vaccination centres across the country for six years.

The nationwide COVID-19 inoculation drive will be implemented in all 63 cities and provinces with 19,500 vaccination centres. The Ministry of Health expects at least half of Vietnamese aged 18 and above will be vaccinated against the coronavirus by the end of 2021, and more than 70 percent of the population will receive the vaccine by the end of the first quarter of 2022./
