On October 27th, Vietnam started their COVID-19 inoculation campaign for approximately 9 million children ages 12-17.
The experimental Pfizer COVID-19 jab is the only one administered to Vietnamese adolescents for the campaign.

Around 1,800 students aged 16 and 17 in #HCMC were vaccinated against #COVID19 on Wednesday. It’s part of a campaign to inoculate #children from 12-17 years old that will be rolled out nationwide next month.

Tragically, three children in this age bracket have passed away following adverse reactions to the Pfizer COVID-19 jab.
A 12-year-old boy in the southern Binh Phuoc Province marked the third death among children in Vietnam following COVID-19 inoculation.
As VnExpress International noted:
He received his first shot of the vaccine on Monday afternoon.
He was then sent home in Dong Phu District to rest. After having dinner, he started suffering from dizziness, abdominal pain, and defecation.
His family took him to a local hospital before he was transferred to the General Hospital of Binh Phuoc and then a hospital in HCMC but the boy could not make it and died Tuesday morning.
Binh Phuoc Department of Health has set up an expert panel to determine the cause of death.
A 16-year-old boy in the northern Bac Giang Province and a ninth-grade girl in Hanoi were the first two deaths among Vietnamese children following inoculation of the Pfizer COVID-19 jab.
3 children have now died in Vietnam from the Pfizer vx 😥 https://t.co/g0GP43KI45

Elsewhere in Vietnam, the central Thanh Hoa Province suspended a Pfizer COVID-19 jab batch after 120 students were hospitalized following their inoculation.

The question of covid vaccine batch/lot variability has not been raised in legacy media to my knowledge. This may be the first such report, from Vietnam https://t.co/ZTH7Pgwmrz

Vietnam: "Thanh Hoa has suspended the use of a Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine batch after over 120 students were hospitalized following their inoculation … exhibiting symptoms like nausea, high fever or breathing difficulties"https://t.co/lwY8kI7fSn pic.twitter.com/H85JZOJ0hk

120 children hospitalized after Pfizer mrna vaccines, 3 dead in the last week in Vietnam.

This week in Vietnam, three children died following Pfizer jab due to "overreaction to the vaccine” and 120 were hospitalised. Last week, four workers in Thanh Hoa's Kim Viet Shoe factory died following Vero Cell Covid jab also due to "overreaction." https://t.co/OILerBMHYC

Thanh Hoa started inoculating 15-17-year-olds with the Pfizer COVID-19 jab on November 30th.
The 120 hospitalizations happened in days and led to suspension of the batch.
VnExpress International described the adverse reactions experienced by the children:
However, over 120 of the children were admitted to hospitals after exhibiting symptoms like nausea, high fever or breathing difficulties, the provincial Center for Disease Control (CDC) said Thursday.
Of these, 17 had severe reactions, but their health has stabilized and they continue to be monitored at the hospital, the center said. The cause of their symptoms has yet to be confirmed by Thanh Hoa authorities.
Thanh Hoa CDC director Luong Ngoc Truong said the province has stopped using the current vaccine batch. “We still have other batches, also Pfizer vaccines, so we will continue vaccinating the children,” he said.
The suspended batch would be put into storage and could be used later for other groups like adults, Truong added.
Pause for a moment and read how nonsensical that sounds.
After 120 children were hospitalized from one injection batch, public health officials will push forward with other batches of the same product.
And the batch that caused 120 hospitalizations in children may be used for adults.
It’s a glaring example of how health agencies have one narrow agenda to inoculate people at all costs.
VnExpress International also mentioned deaths following inoculation of the Vero Cell Covid-19 jab:
Last week, four workers in Thanh Hoa’s Kim Viet Shoe factory died following their Vero Cell Covid-19 vaccination, also due to “overreaction.”
The Vero Cell (Sinopharm) COVID-19 jab is the inactivated injection manufactured in China.
Months ago, I highlighted what a disaster the COVID-19 jab rollout was in Vietnam.
Moving on to Vietnam, which has taken a heavy-handed authoritarian approach similar to Australia.
Before their vaccination campaign, Vietnam reported zero COVID-19 cases or deaths.
Vietnam was praised as a model for the world:
Six months ago, Vietnam had supposedly "handled" covid via masks, border controls, and contact tracing.
They were held up as a model for the world.https://t.co/AWkfngjR2Q

Vietnam’s mass vaccination campaign started March 8, 2021.
The vaccination drive got off to a slow start but kicked into overdrive by July.
Guess what also spiked around the same time?
COVID-19 cases & deaths.
Vietnam witnessed a dramatic surge at the end of July and throughout August.
Vietnam’s vaccination rate from July 1st to September 1st has increased from:
3.7% partially vaccinated to 18.3% partially vaccinated.
And things don’t appear to be slowing down right now.

Vietnam reports 54.22% of its population fully inoculated and 73.99% partially inoculated against COVID-19.
A glimpse of their Worldometer chart shows Vietnam is witnessing another spike in COVID-19 cases and deaths.
