Mekong Delta localities are accelerating Covid-19 immunization now they have access to more vaccines.
On Tuesday, Can Tho City allocated 500,000 Sinopharm and 40,000 Pfizer doses to its nine districts for mass vaccination.
As planned, from now until December, the city will administer at least 36,000 vaccine doses per day.
The capital of Mekong Delta is one of the localities in the region to boost vaccination after the central government decided to prioritize vaccines for southern localities.
Nguyen Ngoc Anh, vice chairman of Ninh Kieu, the most populated district in Can Tho, said Tuesday the district has been inoculating 8,000-10,000 people per day and in most cases, with Sinopharm.
