Germany supports Viet Nam with 852.480 vaccine doses via COVAX

This vaccine donation is being supplied via the COVAX Facility in close cooperation with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) Vietnam and the Vietnamese Government.

“I am very happy about this delivery of German vaccines via COVAX. Germany stands with Vietnam in fighting and overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic," German Ambassador to Vietnam, Dr. Guido Hildner, said.

"We can only defeat the pandemic if it is brought under control everywhere. Therefore, Germany and the European Union support the COVAX vaccination campaign for fair and transparent access to COVID-19 vaccines worldwide,” he added.

“On behalf of the UN Family, we thank the Government and people of Germany for sharing with the Vietnamese people these life-saving vaccine doses sent through the COVAX Facility”, says Dr. Kidong Park, United Nations Resident Coordinator ad interim and the WHO Representative in Vietnam.

 

“Given the challenging pandemic situation in the country now, we continue to advocate for the Government to prioritize vaccination of health care workers and frontline workers, the elderly, people with co-morbidities and those who are at highest risk of severe diseases or deaths.”

With the delivery of vaccines donated by the Government of Germany, Vietnam has received 12,578,110 doses of COVID-19 vaccines via the COVAX Facility.

The COVAX Facility is co-led by WHO, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness and Innovations (CEPI), GAVI - the Vaccine Alliance, and UNICEF as a key delivery partner.
