NDO/VNA – The northern province of Quang Ninh will begin vaccinating children aged 12-17 against COVID-19 on October 30, with the inoculation to be carried out in all localities.

This is a positive move to realise the goal that the province vaccine people aged 18 years and above with two doses and organise vaccination for children aged 12-17 to ensure herd immunity.

Over 95%, or nearly 119,000, of local children aged 12-17 are expected to receive the full two shots in the coming time. The inoculation must be agreed by children’s guardians.

The provincial health sector plans to mobilise 3,600 medical workers to conduct the inoculation.
