Sudan Begins Inoculating Health Workers Against COVID-19

Sudan began vaccinating frontline healthcare personnel against coronavirus on Tuesday following the receipt of its first batch of vaccines via the COVAX facility.

“We started Tuesday vaccinating health care workers and other staff in isolation hospitals,” said Al-Taher Abdelrahman, an official of the isolation centers department at the health ministry.

“Those who received the first dose today will be receiving another dose after a month,” he added.

Sudan received 828,000 doses of the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine last Wednesday, with which it plans to inoculate 414,000 frontline healthcare workers across the country.

The vaccines will be free and healthcare workers and the elderly will be prioritized.
