The Government expects to receive 1.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines between now and the end of September.

Dr. Tufton says while the vaccination programme has been slower than expected due to vaccine availability, the Ministry is more confident of getting supplies as of August.

He explains that some of the vaccines will be the single-dose Johnson & Johnson.

393, 000 doses are expected over the next few months.

The first shipment of 168,000 is due within the next week and a half.

Dr. Tufton says vaccines are expected from the United States, United Kingdom and the COVAX facility.
