(Georgetown, Guyana) Health Minister, Dr Frank Anthony yesterday stated that Guyana’s main focus for procuring COVID-19 vaccines is through the COVAX facility.

Dr Anthony was at the time responding to a question posed by Stabroek News during his daily COVID-19 update.

COVAX is one of three pillars of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, which was launched in April by the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Commission and France in response to the pandemic. It strives to ensure that people in all corners of the world get access to COVID-19 vaccines once they are available, regardless of their wealth.
