Health authorities in the country have disclosed that Liberia will on Friday September 3, 2021 receive 108,000 Doses of Johnson and Johnson vaccines in the Country.
Addressing reporters Thursday at a news conference in Monrovia, the Director of Expanded Program on Immunization at the Ministry of Health, Adolphus Clarke said the additional doses come following frantic efforts from President George Weah to ensure that Liberia acquires additional COVID-19 vaccines.
Clarke stressed that the health gesture is also as a result of the World Bank Group additional financing agreement with Liberia amounting to US$8million.
According to the EPI boss, the first doses of Johnson and Johnson by the World Bank will arrive by 7:15pm local time at the Roberts International Airport via Brussels Airlines.
Clarke further said there are more males than females who have so far been vaccinated in Liberia.
He added that about 93.84% of Liberians have been vaccinated; while 6.61% are non-Liberians, something he described as welcoming and shows positive energy worth commending.
