Mozambique has enough COVID-19 vaccines for eligible population

January 21, 2022

Mozambique has enough vaccines against COVID-19 to immunize its vaccine-eligible population and the country expects to vaccinate another five million people in the next four months, Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has announced.

Nyusi addressed the nation on television on Wednesday night in the context of restrictions over public calamity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said the booster dose of the vaccine is already being administered to people aged 60 and above, and soon the country will start vaccinating children under 15 years old.

The president considered the adherence to vaccination as satisfactory and urged people to join the process, recalling that among the 31 people who lost their lives to COVID-19 in the past 30 days, only one was fully vaccinated.

Since the beginning of the vaccination campaign in March 2021, more than eight million people have been fully vaccinated and over 10 million people have received at least one dose, said the president.

The president decided to maintain most of the measures announced one month ago, but with some exceptions, including the reopening of beaches, the resumption of normal opening hours of all commercial establishments, and the extension of the number of visits to hospitalized patients and prisoners.

The new presidential decree will last for 30 days.
