The information was revealed during a working session between Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh with leaders of ministries, vaccine producers and scientists in Hanoi on July 23.

In the coming time, there will be 4 vaccines manufactured in Vietnam, including 2 domestic products and 2 products receiving foreign technology transfer.

For Nano Covax, the first shots were given to 13,007 volunteers in the third phase while the second shots were offered to 977 others. The phase is scheduled to be completed by August 15.

So far, three domestic units and enterprises have negotiated with partners from the US, Japan and Russia about technology transfer.

If trials are successful, units plan to begin producing vaccines with an annual capacity of 200-300 million doses from late 2021.
