Covid-19: Mozambique Order Enough Doses To Vaccinate 20% Of Population

Mozambique could receive six million doses of coronavirus vaccines for its population of 30 million, its health minister has told parliament.

Armindo Tiago said Mozambique was part of the global initiative, Covax, which will allow the fast and equitable distribution of vaccines by the World Health Organization.

Mr Tiago said officials would first need to identify which citizens were most in need.

The WHO’s distribution mechanism will ensure that each country receives doses to vaccinate up to 20% of its population.
