Print

Vietnam’s surveillance of adverse events following vaccination meets the requirements of the World Health Organisation (WHO), said experts from the organisation.

After a one-week mission to Vietnam from April 9 to review the implementation of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in the country, the WHO team announced that all six components under Vietnam’s NRA system have passed the check with good results.

The team, including 14 experts from the WHO and two observers from Russia urged the Department of Preventive Medicine under the Ministry of Health and the post-vaccination monitoring systems at all levels to continue their efforts in the field.

During the checking process, the team made field trips to the southern province of Tay Ninh where they had working sessions with the provincial preventive medicine centre, the municipal medical centre of Tay Ninh City and the medical station of Ward 4, Tay Ninh City.-VNA
