It wants to complete the task before the end of the first semester in order to prepare for a return to school in the second.

Remote learning has been extended indefinitely though the city has lifted most other lockdown restrictions.

Nguyen Van Vinh Chau, deputy director of the city Department of Health, said vaccinations for students would begin once the Ministry of Health puts out specific guidelines and there is enough supply of vaccines.

His department has made a list of students aged 12 and above, but the vaccination schedule has yet to be drawn up and the city is still waiting for adequate vaccine supply, he said.

As of October 4, 96,4% of the city population aged 18 and above have received as least one dose of a vaccine and 60.6 percent are fully inoculated, according to the Ho Chi Minh City Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
