According to The Star, Vietnam's health officials and doctors agree that the country is ready to launch a safe vaccination program for children aged 5 to 11, with a goal of achieving a vaccination rate of 90 to 95 percent in this age group.
Experts suggest that after a successful vaccination effort for youngsters aged 12 to 17, it is now critical to vaccinate younger children to avoid the spread of Covid-19. Few adverse responses were observed after the vaccination was given to younger children, indicating that parents can be confidence in the vaccine's safety and efficacy.
