Hanoi (VNA) – A national vaccination information management system will be applied at all vaccination facilities in Hanoi from April 1 in a bid to increase vaccination rates for under-one children in the city.

The municipal Department of Health organised training courses on how to use the system to improve effectiveness of vaccination activities in the city before the system is put in operation.  

Hoang Duc Hanh, Deputy Director of Hanoi’s Department of Health, said the deployment of the national vaccination information management system will benefit not only state management agencies but also vaccination establishments and residents.

Hanh added that the health department is piloting a new weekly timetable for vaccinations in Long Bien district instead of two days or two rounds every month as previously. The weekly timetable will be soon applied across the city.-VNA
