HANOI (Biz Hub) — The Pharmacy Management Department under the Health Ministry has asked all private health centers offering measles and chicken-pox vaccination to implement back-up plans and have enough supplies of vaccines.

In a document sent yesterday to the Department of Preventive Medicine, deputy head of the Pharmacy Management Department Nguyen Tat Dat said that according to the Government Ordinance issued in November 2013, these vaccines are allowed to be imported in unlimited supply and do not need to get permission from the Health Ministry.

The Pharmacy Management Department only requested that the buying-in price of these vaccines must not exceed the price submitted earlier to the department.
