Vanuatu Sinopharm vaccine

Vanuatu to receive additional Sinopharm Covid-19 doses from China

Minister of Health, Silas Bule, said China will be supplying the extra vaccine stock following a request from the Vanuatu Government.

Negotiations are underway for a flight to bring the vaccine and syringes from China via Auckland in New Zealand early next month, said Minister Bule according to a Vanuatu Daily Post report.

Vanuatu received its first 20,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccine and 22,400 syringes from China in July this year, one month after the Sinopharm vaccine was listed for emergency use by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
