Ministry of Health The Gambia is pleased to inform the public that the first consignment of #COVID19 #vaccine finally arrived in the country last night through the COVAX facility. We thank our esteem partners, UNICEF Gambia Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance World Health Organization (WHO) @CEPI, for making this happened.

Below are few FAQ you might be interested to know:

Q. Who are going to be vaccinated first?

A. Vaccines will first be given to high-risk groups like health care workers, followed by older people and individuals with underlying conditions like asthma, high-blood pressure, tuberculosis and diabetes.

Later on, we hope to reach more people in the community with the COVID-19 vaccines. But it will take some time before these vaccines become widely available.

Q. Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?
A. Yes. COVID-19 vaccines go through robust clinical trials, and are only approved for use after its safety and efficacy has been rigorously tested and the benefits are proven.

PRESS RELEASE

The Ministry of Health wishes to inform the public that in relation to the national COVID-19 vaccination campaign, the following will be implemented with immediate effect:

All individuals who have received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine between 05 March and 08 May 2021 are urged to return for their second dose before 27 June 2021.

The priority is now being shifted to administering the second dose to people who took their first dose due to low stock of COVID-19 vaccines.

All efforts are being made to ensure additional stocks of vaccines are available in the country as soon as possible to ensure the continuity and success of the vaccination campaign.

Please note that the second dose is necessary in order to obtain maximum immunological protection against the virus. Therefore, those who have taken their first dose are urged to return for their second shot.
