The launch of the platform was assigned by the prime minister, the Ministry of Health (MoH), the Ministry of Information and Communications, and the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control.
The platform includes four parts: The application of electronic medical records, a COVID-19 information portal, National Immunization Support System, and Mission Control Centre.
When operational, the platform will help the locals access vaccination services. The application will hold all electronic medical records for all vaccination processes from registering, vaccination history, and results of vaccination, as well as updates on the COVID-19 information portal.
The platform will help ensure fast vaccination as well as increase transparency and support management and supervision.
The nationwide COVID-19 vaccination campaign will take place in all 63 cities and provinces via 19,500 vaccination sites. Through the campaign, the MoH expects that by the end of 2021, at least half of the adult population can be vaccinated and by the end of the first quarter of 2022, the rate will increase to 70 per cent of the population.
Before developing the platform, Viettel has amassed six years of experience in developuing the national vaccination system connecting 14,000 vaccination units.
