How to register for your COVID-19 vaccine for foreigners?
The ministry has confirmed that anyone over the age 18 can choose one of two ways to register for their vaccination online. People must provide information on which priority groups they are in. Based on that information, authorities will arrange vaccination schedules for each group, Nam told Vietnam News Agency.
Option One: Directly via the COVID-19 vaccination portal: https://tiemchungcovid19.gov.vn/portal/register-person
Option Two: Via the E-health app for phones using Android and iOS that can be downloaded here: https://hssk.kcb.vn/#/sskdt.
To use the app users must register with a phone number. After verifying their information, users will receive instructions for registering for their vaccination.
Data collected will be transferred to vaccination venues. The venues will screen registrants, confirm their information, and make a list of people to prioritise. Once registered, users will be notified as vaccines become available. They will be given an appointment for screening and will be informed about their vaccination schedule.
There are sixteen priority groups and there are four types of localities being prioritized for vaccination, please check via link:
