Addressing a conference on the implementation of the national COVID-19 vaccination campaign on June 15, Long said that eight storage facilities will be installed, with one in the High Command of Hanoi Capital, and seven in seven military regions across the nation.

All vaccine storage facilities must meet Good Storage Practices (GSP) standards to ensure vaccine quality, he stated.

During the campaign, all vaccination stations will be strictly supervised by an online control system, with information on the numbers of people getting injections as well as vaccine doses inoculated to be publicised.

About 15,000 vaccination stations have assigned sufficient human resources and accounts to update and publicize the vaccination process, the number of used doses and the number of people vaccinated, he added.

The minister emphasized the need to ensure absolute safety from vaccine transportation and preservation to vaccination organisation./.
