It pointed out that many families had refused to have their children injected with the second dose, and a lot of children have to postpone the vaccination as they are sick or infected with Covid-19. Meanwhile, Moderna can only be used for a maximum of 30 days since it is defrosted. Therefore, many localities have to use this vaccine on adults.

The ministry’s statistics showed that as of August 23, the country had administered more than 255.1 million doses of vaccines, including over 14.8 million for children of five to below 12 years old.
