Currently, COVID-19 pandemic developments are complicated in many countries around the world, including Vietnam. The Politburo and the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee have had the policy to buy pandemic prevention vaccines for people in the whole country. The Government also issued Resolution No. 09/NQ-CP dated 18 May 2021 on purchase of COVID-19 vaccines, which assigned the MoH to urgently organize the purchase of vaccines for implementing mass vaccination of the people.

In addition to using VND12,100 billion from 2020 spending savings to buy vaccines, on 26 May 2021, the Prime Minister also issued a Decision to establish a COVID-19 Vaccine Fund to mobilize social resources to fight the COVID-19 pandemic together.

In the spirit of urgency, actively implementing the guidelines of the Party and the Government and promoting the pioneering role and responsibility of State enterprises in performing socio-political tasks to the community in the context of very complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic; Vietnam Electricity (EVN) decided to support the COVID-19 Vaccine Fund with an amount of VND30 billion.

Thus, up to now, the total amount of money that EVN and its member units have contributed to and supported heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic provinces and cities as well as supporting the pandemic prevention and control activities of the health sector is VND37.6 billion. Currently, EVN and its units are still making effort, striving to continue to perform well the dual-task: both to carry out COVID-19 prevention and control, and to ensure power supply for the socio-economic development of the country.
