VGP – The southern province of Binh Duong is stepping up vaccine rollout in a bid to return to new normal by September 15.

Nguyen Minh Huy, a resident in Binh Duong's Thu Dau Mot, gets the first COVID-19 vaccine jab.

The ramp-up in inoculations means the southern industrial hub needs to administer 250,000 vaccine doses per day.

The local authorities have mobilized its health workers and supportive medical forces to join the process.

As of Saturday, as many as 1,134,176 local residents received the first vaccine jabs, accounting for 42 percent of the locality’s population. Of these, 46,080 people were fully vaccinated.

Since April 27 when the fourth COVID-19 wave hit Viet Nam, Binh Duong recorded 128,983 infection cases, making it the second worst-affected locality after nearby Ho Chi Minh City – the current epicenter of the country’s outbreak./.
