PRESS RELEASE ON THE INTRODUCTION OF SINOPHARM COVID-19 VACCINE

The Ministry of Health wishes to inform the general public that it will commence introducing the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine on Saturday 17th July 2021. Due to the limited stock of this vaccine, Sukuta Health Center, located in Sukuta West Coast Region, has been identified for now, as the only site where one can get vaccinated with Sinopharm vaccine. The vaccine will be given on a first come first have basis, thus individuals should rush to the center on Saturday starting 9am to get their shot. For one to be fully protected with the vaccine, individuals need to receive two doses at an interval of 3 4 weeks.

The Ministry would like to remind those who received their first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine that they should not receive a different vaccine apart from AstraZeneca. The Ministry hereby re-assures those who could not get their second eligible dose of AstraZeneca as a result of stock-out, that they will subsequently receive their due dose, as preparations are underway for the availability of more doses of AstraZeneca vaccine.

The public is also reminded that safe and effective vaccination against COVID-19 is essential to bring this outbreak under control but alone will not be sufficient. observing social distancing, wearing of face mask, avoiding overcrowded places, avoiding handshaking, frequent hand sanitizing and washing hands with soap and clean water are critical intervention strategies.

The Ministry is, therefore, soliciting the continuous support and cooperation of the public in its efforts to contain COVID-19 in the country.

For more information, please call our toll-free line: 1025

Signed:
Mr. Modou Njai
Director of Health Promotion & Education
