"The World Health Organization (WHO) committed to send the doses by June. We hope that the schedule will be met," he said and explained that Venezuela paid US$120 million to receive the immunizer.
This acquisition will allow the vaccination of 5 million Venezuelan citizens, since Johnson and Johnson only takes one dose.
Maduro made this announcement one day after health authorities expanded the national vaccination campaign aiming to meet the goal of 22 million immunized citizens by December and achieve herd immunity.
#Venezuela President Nicolás Maduro said on Tuesday the single-dose Russian Sputnik Light vaccine will soon arrive in Venezuela to face the new wave of Covid-19 cases.
