Ivory Coast receives vaccine

The COVAX initiative has shipped 504,000 doses of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine to Abidjan, the economic capital of Côte d’Ivoire.

This makes Côte d’Ivoire the second African country and first French-speaking country to receive vaccine doses through the COVAX Facility, the World Health Organisation says.

COVAX is co-led by Gavi, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations and WHO. It aims to accelerate the development and manufacture of COVID-19 vaccines and to guarantee fair and equitable access for every country in the world.
Meanwhile, the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala said Nigeria’s COVAX vaccine supplies will be on the way soon.

Okonjo-Iweala disclosed this on her official Twitter handle @NOIweala.

She said “Very happy to see first delivery of #COVAX supported vaccines to Ghana. Excited to see more countries following. Nigeria’s supplies should be on its way soon. No trade restrictions or bureaucracy should get in the way.”

In a Twitter post by the World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa – @WHOAFRO on Friday, the agency said 504,000 doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine just arrived in Abidjan.
Recall that on Wednesday, Ghana became the recipient of the historic first shipment of COVAX vaccines.

In a statement jointly issued by UNICEF Representative in Ghana, Anne-Claire Dufay; and WHO Representative to Ghana, Dr. Francis Kasolo, it said the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccines into Ghana is critical in bringing the pandemic to an end.

“The only way out of this crisis is to ensure that vaccinations are available for all. We thank all partners that are supporting the COVAX Facility to deliver safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines to all countries quickly and fairly.
