The vaccine deliveries are part of the historic COVID-19 Vaccine Advance Procurement Agreement signed on March 28, 2021, by AVAT for the purchase of 220 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson single-shot COVID-19 vaccine, with the potential to order an additional 180 million doses.

In total, the 400 million vaccines acquired by AVAT are sufficient to immunise a third of the African population.

Senior Specialist for  Digital & Internal Communications and Events, at  Afreximbank, Ama Amoah, handed over the consignment to a Member of the Health Commodity Group for COVID-19 at the Ministry of Health, Dr Elysee Karikari Agyeman.

She said the vaccines were acquired by the government and not a donation. Member States that have ordered vaccines through AVAT will continue to receive shipments in the coming months.
