“The Guyana Government is awaiting shipment information, and we will advise the public as soon as the MOH receive shipment details,” the Health Ministry said.

Additionally, AstraZeneca and SinoPharm are no longer available for the first dose, the Health Ministry disclosed but noted that the second dose is available.

“But everyone who has received their first dose will get their second dose. These doses are currently available,” it stated.

The Government and Opposition have been urging persons living in Guyana to get vaccinated to flatten the curve.
