Meanwhile, First Secretary of the Indian Embassy in Vietnam Sushil Prasad said that the noble gesture of the Vietnam - India Friendship Association, the Vietnam Red Cross, as well as the Vietnamese people, is the timely concern and sharing, demonstrating the friendly cooperation and good tradition between India and Vietnam in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sharing his feelings when coming to the National Lung Hospital (Hanoi) to be vaccinated against COVID-19 on July 13, Mr. Michael Brosowski, co-executive director - founder of the Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, said that he was very impressed with the policy of the Vietnamese Government in giving free vaccination against COVID-19 for foreigners in Vietnam. “We came to be vaccinated and saw that VUFO's officers and employees were doing everything for us: registration procedures, health checks, ordering, keeping distance, and disinfecting,” he said.

Ms Heidi Quine from Animals Asia Foundation said that although Vietnam still needs a vaccine for everyone, it gives vaccines to foreigners. “I feel lucky and really grateful for the support of the Government of Vietnam, the Ministry of Health and VUFO to help foreigners working in Vietnam like us get vaccinated,” she added.
