Dong Da district, a disease hotspot labeled Level 3 in terms of pandemic risk level, the program was kicked started on December 30, 2021 to inoculate 1,000 people who are not able to travel to vaccination sites.

On January 6, Tran Thi Nhi Ha, Director of the municipal Department of Health (DoH) reported that Ha Noi had secured adequate COVID-19 vaccines to inject third shots for residents.

Ha Noi ranked second after Ho Chi Minh City in terms of third doses given, 1.1 million additional doses and 320,000 booster doses.

In addition, over 95% of the capital city’s adult population have been fully vaccinated. The rate of critically ill and ill patients and fatality are 1.5% and 0.26%, respectively.

The city also stockpiled nearly 19,000 bags of Molnupiravir, an antiviral drug for mild patients for home treatment. So far, Ha Noi houses over 37,000 active cases including 27,000 at places of residence./.
