The Ministry of Finance, which is in charge of the vaccine fund, said the fund-raising campaign is being effective, obtaining a large amount of donations.

Vietnam needs 150 million doses of vaccines to administer about 75 percent of its population this year, with total cost amounting to 25.2 trillion VND. The State budget has so far prepared more than 14 trillion VND to cover expense and is short of some 11 trillion VND.

The ministry said said that it will publicize the amount of donations the fund receives every day along with the spending of money from the fund for the purpose on its recently launched website.
