Vaccination against COVID-19 begins in South Sudan

South Sudan has finally started the vaccination drive against COVID-19.  

Vaccine rollout has begun in South Sudan at a hospital in the capital, Juba, where health workers were among the first to receive the jab. 

A total of 132,000 Oxford-AstraZeneca doses were received last month through the global vaccine alliance Covax, but health authorities blamed “logistical constraints” for delaying rollout by a week.
