According to Prime Minister John Briceño, the government is insisting on its quota of vaccines through COVAX. The government has made a down payment, and the vaccine allocation should cover thirty-percent of the population. The first shipment is expected to arrive at the end of March. Briceño says the Ministry of Health and Wellness has already begun working on a roll-out plan.

We have already done the down payment. The next step is that the Ministry just at the last cabinet meeting said that he is going to, next week or shortly, will give us a plan as to the roll out for the vaccine.
