The fund was set up for the purchasing of COVID-19 vaccines from abroad and for supporting the production of made-in-Vietnam vaccines towards fulfilling the target of inoculating 70 per cent of Việt Nam’s 98-million population, to help the country quickly recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and soon stabilize the socio-economy.
