By BBN Staff: Today, the Government of Belize and the Ministry of Health and Wellness informed that it will be receiving its first shipment of the COVID-19 vaccine from the Government and people of Barbados.
The donation of 1,000 single-dose Astra Zeneca COVID-19 vaccines will be arriving at the Philip Goldson International Airport by cargo flight tomorrow, February 24, 2021.
Representatives of the Ministry of Health and Wellness will be present to officially receive the donation.
Minister of Health and Wellness, Michel Chebat, expressed gratitude on behalf of the Prime Minister of Belize, John Briceño, and the people of Belize for the donations that were fast-tracked to arrive almost immediately after the acceptance of an offer from Belize’s CARICOM sister country.
“Belize continues in bilateral negotiations with other countries to source and buy additional COVID-19 vaccines for the country. The Ministry anticipates as well the arrival of the COVAX vaccines at the end of March or the beginning of April,” a statement from the Government said.
The Ministry continues to urge the public´s cooperation to reduce the rate of infections.
The public is encouraged to visit the public health facilities or rapid testing sites in their area as advertised.
