Africa to get 90 million vaccine doses in February

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Nearly 90 million Covid-19 vaccine doses will be sent to Africa throughout this month, through the international Covax initiative.

The WHO said that about 320,000 doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine have been allocated to four African countries – Cape Verde, Rwanda, South Africa and Tunisia.

On the other hand, the roll-out of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is subject to the vaccine being listed for emergency use by WHO. The organisation is currently reviewing the vaccine and the outcome of the review is expected soon.
