Ethiopia will be receiving nine million doses of COVID-19 vaccines within the coming two months, according to Minister of Health Lia Tadesse (MD). The vaccines will be provided through COVAX, an initiative under the World Health Organisation, Gavi and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations.
The Ministry of Health plans to have around 20pc of the population vaccinated by the end of the year, prioritising healthcare providers and frontline workers like teachers and individuals with underlying health conditions.
It has developed a national vaccine deployment plan that includes policy for prioritisation, a service delivery strategy, a plan for cold chain capacity, and a vaccine distribution and communication strategy.
Over 144,000 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Ethiopia since March 2020 and 2,160 individuals have lost their lives to the pandemic.
