The committee said 67.6 percent of the city’s adult population of 826,933 has been inoculated with one shot and 9.4 percent or 78,052 have been fully vaccinated.

The municipal Department of Health said it has received 684,3560 doses of vaccines of all kinds.

The city will speed up the vaccination pace to give one shot of vaccine to 95 percent of the adult population by the end of September and 100 percent by the end of October, while the rate of fully vaccination will reach 22.1 percent.

Da Nang will propose the MoH to prioritise the city in allocating vaccine. In addition, it will also be proactive in securing vaccines to ensure that 90 percent of residents from 12 years old and above, are fully vaccinated, the committee said./. VNA
