Mozambique is ready to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday to begin a countrywide vaccination campaign against Covid-19.
TOS News gathered health workers will be among the first to be vaccinated because of their “high exposure to infection” during work.
According to Mozambican Ministry of Health “121,530 vaccine doses have been distributed to the provinces, out of the 200,000 doses that the country received from China last month.”
Mozambique has so far confirmed 62,520 coronavirus cases, with 693 deaths and 46,421 recoveries.
The country expects to receive an additional 484,000 vaccine doses on Monday. These include 384,000 from the Covax initiative and 100,000 of the Covishield vaccine donated by India.
