Of the freshly-received vaccine, there are 400,000 doses donated via the bilateral diplomatic channel and nearly 1 million doses via the COVAX Facility. It was the result of Vietnam’s vaccine diplomacy efforts and of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh’s official visit to France in November.

The assistance of the French Government and people to Vietnam amid the complicated developments of COVID-19 is of important significance. It is a vivid evidence for the strategic partnership between the two countries and affirms their cooperation and mutual support in pandemic prevention and control.
