China has donated 50,000 doses of the Sinopharm covid-19 vaccine to Solomon Islands.
Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare echoed this in his nationwide address yesterday.
He said Solomon Islands expect the vaccines to arrive in the country on April 11, this week.
Sogavare said the Technical working group together with the National Covid-19 Coordinating Committee will shortly be looking into the roll-out plan for the Sinopharm vaccine.
“More than 50 countries have received and are using Sinopharm Vaccines under their own ‘Emergency Use Authorisations’ either through donations or direct procurement.
“We are closely monitoring the approval process by the World Health Organisation of the Sinopharm vaccine to guide our roll-out planning.”
