Guyana’s second batch of 30,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine purchased from Russia has arrived at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) onboard the Amerijet International.

Previously, on April 2, the country received its first 25,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine. Both batches, now totalling 55,000, are out of some 200,000 doses purchased by the Government which will be arriving in portions. It cost the Government $800 million at $4,000 per dose.

Minister of Health, Dr. Frank Anthony has called for the equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in all countries, particularly developing nations.

In a recent message, he said that he hopes countries can work together to get the vaccines, and that global immunisation can be done at a faster rate, so that everyone could be safe.
