Only second dose Covid-19 vaccines now administered

Only the second dose of the CoviShield Covid-19 vaccines are now administered in Walvis Bay.

The town’s available supply of the Astra-Zeneca Covid-19 vaccines have reached a point where there are only enough vaccines left to administer the second dose of people who received their first doses earlier this year.
The Sinopharm Covid vaccine remains available for first doses.
This confirmed yesterday by the Director of Health in Erongo, Anna Jonas.
Residents in Walvis Bay complained in recent days that queues at the vaccination point of the Ministry of Health and Social Services at the Welwitschia Private Hospital is long. Waiting periods are several hours and that people are not social distancing at these vaccination points.
