By Aaron Humes: As part of its 100 million excess, Oxford-AstraZeneca produced COVID-19 vaccine supplies to be donated to developing countries, the United Kingdom will deliver 42 thousand doses to Belize, the Government announced today.

The deal was arranged between Belize Minister of Foreign Affairs Eamon Courtenay and Minister of State for the Commonwealth Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon as well as British High Commissioner Claire Evans and will be in use for the ongoing national vaccine program.

Belize has primarily been using AstraZeneca vaccine donated from Mexico, Barbados through India, and the COVAX program of the World Health Organization, which it bought last year. Belize has also used the Sinopharm vaccine from China, mainly for the local Taiwanese and Mainland Chinese population.

As of today, more than 125 thousand Belizeans are partially vaccinated and more than 50 thousand fully vaccinated.
