The first lot of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine, provided by the COVAX-initiative, has arrived in Sierra Leone. The Team Europe was present at the handing-over ceremony with the EU and Irish Ambassadors and the German and the French Chargées d'Affaires - and of course the Hon. Minister of Health, Dr. Austin Demby as well as the Dep. Minister of Foreign Affaires and NaCOVERC Spokesperson Mr. Solomon Jamiru.

COVAX is an international initiative to provide Covid-19 vaccine to all countries with the Goal to have at least 20 percent of the populations vaccinated within 2021.

Germany is the largest single donor of Act-A, which COVAX is a part of.

Only when the People of all countries have been vaccinated can we all be safe of this desease.

Until then: wear your mask, keep distance and stay safe!
