G.O.B. to Acquire More COVID Vaccine

At the end of this month, one hundred and twenty thousand doses of Pfizer vaccine expires. This is because residents have not been coming out to get their jabs – be that the initial dose, their second jab or even the booster. It is a great loss, in the millions of dollars, because it cost the Government of Belize to acquire the vaccine, which serves as a layer of protection against the deadly COVID-19 virus.  But today, Doctor Natalia Largaespada Beer told the media that despite the loss, G.O.B. is procuring a new batch of vaccines to continue with its vaccination of the adult population.

“The government of Belize has secured more than a hundred percent of the vaccines required to vaccinate the eligible population for COVID-19 vaccine in Belize. That is applaudable and now we are seeking to procure more vaccines. As you all know, we will have a terrible loss at the end of May this year, but we are already seeking how to get more vaccines and we are hoping that in a month’s time, we should have restocked Pfizer vaccine to continue with the revaccination or completing schemes or booster doses.”
