More frontline health workers across Guyana will be immunized against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), as the country has received 20,000 doses of the Sinopharm vaccine from China.

With over 8,600 persons in Guyana being infected and 198 losing their lives to COVID-19, Guyana will be looking to utilise its vaccines to immunise firstly the frontline health workers who treat patients in need of care, and, subsequently, administer the vaccine to other vulnerable persons.

The timely donation of Sinopharm vaccines arrived on a Caribbean Airlines flight at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) on Tuesday evening.
