Ho Chi Minh City's 5th vaccination campaign took place from July 20 to August 2, giving vaccinations to more than 920,000 people. Data about over 630,000 vaccinated people is available.

She told an online conference on technology platforms amid the pandemic on August 3 that in the 5th round of vaccination, from July 20 to August 2, local people registered for vaccinations online. The local Department of Information and Communications granted about 10,000 accounts to organizations to enter data about people who are prioritized for vaccination. The system recorded 1,843,000 registered cases.

Trinh emphasized the importance of coordinating with the delegation of the Ministry of Information and Communications in Ho Chi Minh City, together with Viettel, to have plans to deploy IT applications and handle newly arising issues.

In the late days of the 5th vaccination round, the use of IT partly helped pushed the number of vaccinated people to over 120,000 people per day, compared to only a few thousand in the early days.

Ho Chi Minh City aims to vaccinate 70% of local residents. To achieve this goal, the city is making vaccination lists through registration on the National Immunization Portal and the Ministry of Health's Electronic Health Book application. About 1.7 million people have registered for vaccination on the National Immunization Portal.

In addition, based on the vaccination database, the Department of Information and Communications advised the city to identify hot spots and priority subjects for vaccinations.

The HCM City Department of Information and Communications will continue to closely coordinate with the delegation of the Ministry of Information and Communications in order to assist HCM City to complete the goal of giving vaccinations to about 5 million people in the next month.

At the conference, Trinh suggested that the Ministry of Information and Communications coordinate with the Ministry of Health to reduce the burden of procedures, combined with simplifying software to reduce time and increase flexibility of vaccinations.
