Hanoi has just received more than one million additional doses of the VeroCell vaccine from Sinopharm. The Hanoi Department of Health said that nearly 1 million doses of this vaccine will be given to people aged 18 years and over and to those who received this vaccine as their first dose.

Frontline forces, employees of agencies involved in the city's pandemic prevention and control efforts, and other target groups will be prioritized based on the amount of vaccines allocated.
