The country has so far received around 33 million vaccine doses of various types through different sources: the Covax facility, government aids, and commercial contracts by the Health Ministry and local firms.

Of them, more than 16 million arrived in Vietnam within August, the ministry said Wednesday.

So far, it has administered 23.57 million vaccine doses, with 3.77 million people having received two doses.

Vietnam aims to receive 150 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines to inoculate 70 percent of its 96-million population in order to achieve herd immunity by April next year.

It has yet to approve any homegrown Covid-19 vaccine for mass vaccination until now.

Since the beginning of the epidemic, Vietnam has recorded 563,676 infections, ranking 50th out of 222 countries and territories.

The infection rate per 1 million people is 5,730, ranking 158th worldwide.

Of all the infections, 14,135 have died, which means a fatality rate of 2.5 percent.
