Second tranche of COVAX vaccines arrive in T&T


    The second tranche of COVID-19 vaccines from the COVAX facility has arrived in T&T.

    According to a Facebook post by the Health Ministry, the delivery landed at 11:59am today.

    This post did not specify the number of vaccines that arrived however Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh has previously said that T&T was expecting 33,600.

    At that time, a week ago, he also stated that a third tranche from COVAX is due sometime in June.

    The first batch of vaccines from the facility arrived in T&T on March 30th 2021.

    T&T is also expected to receive vaccines from the African Medical Supply Platform, while talks are continuing with some vaccine manufacturers.
