According to the ministry, in Vietnam,

The ministry proposed the chairpersons of the People’s Committees of provinces and cities strictly implement directions of the Government and the Prime Minister, and carry out measures on pandemic prevention and control.

The local Departments of Health were asked to work with Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology or Pasteur Institute to carry out sampling and sequencing of genes to early detect dangerous new variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Departments of Information and Communications should strengthen disseminations on vaccination, as well as its benefits and effectiveness, while the Departments of Education and Training should coordinate with the health sector to accelerate the inoculation at schools./.
