Health Ministry Receives 8.4m COVID-19 Vax Doses

The Ministry of Health received a total 8.38 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines last week. The US government donated a little under 1.7 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, while the French government extended 6.7 million doses through the World Health Organisation's (WHO) COVAX facility. The donations are expected to hasten the vaccination campaign in the country, which have been stagnating. Health professionals administered close to six million doses in a month as part of a revamped campaign last November but the figures have levelled off over the past month. Close to 11 million doses have been administered to the public since the Ministry embarked on its vaccination campaign last April.
