Ivory Coast becomes the second country to receive COVAX vaccine

Ivory Coast has become the second country after Ghana to receive COVAX vaccine. A plane carrying 504,000 doses arrived in the commercial capital Abidjan as the country now prepares for a vaccination drive.

This fight against the pandemic must be done in a democratic manner,” said Ivorian Health Minister Eugene Aka Aouele as he welcomed the arrival of the shipment. 

“The democratisation of the fight enables our countries to get the right to the vaccines in the same way as the big nations,” he said.
