UK supply of AstraZeneca vaccine on the way

Posted: Friday, July 30, 2021. 9:05 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Belize is still on track to get a top-up of its vaccine supply from the former “mother country,” the United Kingdom.

The makers of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine are donating 42,000 doses to Belize as part of a worldwide initiative spearheaded by the Minister of State for the Commonwealth, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon.

The doses are set to arrive next Tuesday, August 3.

According to Minister of Health and Wellness Michel Chebat, colleague Minister Senator Eamon Courtenay, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration worked out the deal with Lord Ahmad through High Commissioner Claire Evans and no delays have been reported.

Belize, except for Sinopharm 3-stage vaccines used almost exclusively within the Asian population, has exclusively been using the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine despite its acknowledged side effects and rare but calculated risk of blood clots.

The country only recently got cold chain storage for the handling of vaccines stored at colder temperatures, including the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
