When asked when the general public would be vaccinated against COVID-19, Dr. Chao Tantan said he had to learn that the period when we would get a large dose of the vaccine, June 2021, we would get 6. Millions of doses in the past, we have 2 hundred thousand doses, 8 hundred thousand doses and 1 million doses. May be viewed that the number is not much. Because we have a limited number of vaccines Not being delayed at all
Therefore, the question is, when will the general public get the injection? We can see a clear picture, starting in June, that lot is 6 million doses in July, and the lot of 10 million doses will increase even further. I have to learn that the number of vaccines obtained is not what I want. It is preparing a plan to negotiate in advance since the vaccine has not been successfully researched yet. Which at that time there were all vaccines that were under research Therefore, which country is interested in getting the vaccine? All have to wait May have waited until next year as well, “said Dr. Chao Tasan.
