Nearly one million Libyans have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine with a weekly vaccination pace of 100,000 people per week, the UNICEF announced on Monday.
The U.N. agency said that it supported Libya’s Ministry of Health to ensure preparedness to receive and dispatch COVID-19 vaccines in the country.
“The main areas of concentration have been the supply of refrigerators to various municipalities, rollout of vaccines, increasing awareness about the vaccines among the local population and provision of COVID-19 prevention equipment,” UNICEF said.
“Since the onset of the mass vaccination campaign on the 11th of August – UNICEF has been working extensively to increase awareness among the local population about the vaccines and effective protection measures.”
“UNICEF is committed to continue its support to the Government of Libya in its fight against COVID-19. The successive arrival of vaccines is critical in bringing the pandemic to an end.”@AbdulkadirMusse “We’re grateful to our donors for their dedicated support.” 🇩🇪🇪🇺🇯🇵 https://t.co/RRrGwLlKlA
