HCMC keeps interval of 8-12 weeks between AstraZeneca first, second dose

As the Ministry of Health has not yet given feedback on the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Health’s proposal to reduce the interval between the first and second shot of AstraZeneca vaccine to six weeks, the city health sector still keeps it unchanged at 8-12 weeks following the Ministry’s guidance, said Dr. Nguyen Huu Hung, Deputy Director of Ho Chi Minh City Department of Health.
