The 40,000 Covishield Covid-19 vaccines, which are being donated by the government of India to this country, is expected to arrive today.
The shipment comes almost two weeks after the Ministry of Health welcomed 33,600 Oxford AstraZeneca vaccines via the COVAX facility on March 30.
This will be the second tranche of vaccines in TT’s arsenal to combat the deadly virus.
The vaccines will be received under heavy security and under the presence of the relevant medical personnel. They will then be transported to storage facilities in Couva and Chaguaramas.
