It is great that efforts are being made to prepare Africa for the COVID Vaccine when it comes. There has been a lot of concerns expressed about the vaccine coming to Africa and as COVID 19 looks to remain for more years to come, it is even greater that Africa is being considered alongside other continents on the sae level of equity and now it will be up to our countries to identify those more in need of the vaccine access to be able to do so

As we talk about preparing to introduce COVID-19 vaccine, on the side of proper planning and management of the vaccine, it is important to know the presentation of the vaccine, recommended storage temperatures at primary and service delivery level, mode of administration and number of doses in the schedule per person. Thank you All!
