In coordination with HSPI, UNDP conducted three studies focusing on an overview of international experience in domestic vaccine development and production, a roadmap of Việt Nam's current vaccine production capacity, and international vaccine licensing policies and procedures. Việt Nam is one of the 11 countries receiving technology transfer for mRNA vaccine production. Meanwhile, many other countries have already administered third doses to their citizens.”By mid-2021, Việt Nam had one of Southeast Asia's lowest COVID-19 vaccine coverage rates. At this workshop, experts proposed a roadmap to transform Việt Nam into a regional vaccine production centre, outlining the necessary steps and actions to enhance the country's vaccine production capacity and contribute to ensuring regional health security. It also offered valuable insights into the technical aspects of mRNA vaccine production and the potential application of this vaccine in Việt Nam.
