They were inoculated on Tuesday. All of them are from Nong Cong District.

On Tuesday, the district’s health centre organised the second doses of Vero Cell vaccine for workers and employees at Kim Viet Shoe Co., Ltd in Nong Cong Town Industrial Complex. All people who registered for the vaccination underwent health screening by local medical workers and were advised about the kind of vaccine they would be vaccinated with as well as possible reactions.

During the vaccination, local medical workers found some people with reactions after injection. Five of them had serious symptoms and were diagnosed with anaphylaxis. They were immediately given emergency treatment at the site by medical workers of the districts’ General Hospital and then transferred to the provincial General Hospital for treatment.

However, two died at 0.45am and 8.45am on Wednesday, respectively.

The provincial Department of Health asked health experts to assess the cause and report to the Ministry of Health for further guidance.
