By Aaron Humes: Despite the expiration of doses of AstraZeneca vaccine at the end of January (approximately 56 thousand), Belize still has more than 321 thousand doses of various vaccines on hand.

Vaccination numbers are still lagging, as at the end of January, the total percentage of the population that has received at least one dose of vaccine is still just 49.5 percent (212,940). Those who have been fully vaccinated number 204,165 or 47.5 percent.

Additionally, over 31,681 booster shots have been issued to date. Also, 30,407 Belizeans aged 12 to 17 years old have received at least one dose of the vaccine and 25,017 two doses.

In the wake of the rising number of COVID-19 infections and the presence of the highly contagious Omicron variant and the continued presence of the Delta variant, Cabinet continues to encourage the public to wear masks in public, maintain physical distance, wash hands regularly, and for those not fully vaccinated, to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccines save lives, says Cabinet.
