“We think in six months or by the end of year we will have at least 20% of the vaccines we need for the subregion”.
All the other ministers of public health, however approved the idea.
The WHO Regional Representative , Dr. Maria Rebollo, said the experts have to ensure that the vaccine is accessible to all persons within the subregion, especially those vulnerable to COVID-19.
