In several districts like Nam Tu Liem, Cau Giay, Tay Ho, Ba Dinh, and Hoan Kiem, many foreign citizens have arrived at COVID-19 vaccination posts to have their samples taken for COVID-19 testing and be injected with vaccine.

At the vaccination posts, foreigners receive support from many volunteers. The volunteers help them to declare personal information, check blood pressure, and engage in follow-up checks after their vaccination. Foreigners, who have been vaccinated, have  also been asked to stay to help other foreigners.

Luangkhampheng Khammany, a Lao student studying at Vietnam National University of Agriculture, said that he feels very lucky to be vaccinated when learning abroad. “I am appreciative and grateful to the Hanoi capital’s authorities. Vietnam is like my second homeland,” he added.

Meanwhile, Robert James Leicester, an Australian teacher at Nguyen Sieu Inter-level School, held that the COVID-19 vaccination campaign has been implemented well in Hanoi. “I appreciated medical personnel who have wholeheartedly helped me and other friends to be vaccinated,” he said.
