Mauritius begins roll out of Covid vaccine

Mauritius began a nationwide Covid-19 vaccination campaign on Tuesday, with medical staff at ENT hospital, the main treatment centre, being the first to be immunised.

Three teams of health workers have also been deployed at Victoria Hospital in the town of Quatre Bornes.

Those vaccinated will get a second dose of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine in about 20 days.

Mauritius received 100,000 doses of vaccine from India on Friday.

A batch of 240,000 doses of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine is expected to arrive in the country by 15 February, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) representative, Laurent Musango.

The Pfizer/BioNtech vaccines were obtained through Covax – a global initiative led by the WHO to make sure vaccines are shared fairly among all nations, rich and poor.
