The World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion (WHO) is set to pub­lish its glob­al roll­out plan soon, which will give T&T a bet­ter in­di­ca­tion of when the vac­cines will be avail­able

“Fi­nal in­for­ma­tion on the first round al­lo­ca­tions, cov­er­ing the ma­jor­i­ty of Fa­cil­i­ty par­tic­i­pants, is ex­pect­ed to be com­mu­ni­cat­ed in the com­ing days,” the WHO as­sured in a news re­lease is­sued yes­ter­day

Speak­ing dur­ing the Min­istry of Health’s brief­ing yes­ter­day, Paras­ram said the num­ber they’re ex­pect­ing rep­re­sent­ed a “por­tion of the first 20 per cent” which is sched­uled to be de­liv­ered dur­ing 2021

T&T has put in an or­der through the CO­V­AX fa­cil­i­ty, for 923,340 dos­es, which is to be de­liv­ered in tranch­es

Last month, the Gov­ern­ment said it was ex­pect­ing the first set of dos­es in March, es­ti­mat­ed to be around 100,000

The CO­V­AX de­liv­ery dates, how­ev­er, will on­ly be known when the roll­out plan is an­nounced and is de­pen­dent on coun­try readi­ness

The WHO state­ment said: “In or­der for dos­es to be de­liv­ered to Fa­cil­i­ty par­tic­i­pants via this first al­lo­ca­tion round, sev­er­al crit­i­cal pieces must be in place, in­clud­ing con­fir­ma­tion of na­tion­al reg­u­la­to­ry au­tho­ri­sa­tion cri­te­ria re­lat­ed to the vac­cines de­liv­ered, in­dem­ni­fi­ca­tion agree­ments, na­tion­al vac­ci­na­tion plans from AMC par­tic­i­pants, as well as oth­er lo­gis­ti­cal fac­tors such as ex­port and im­port li­cens­es.”

It added: “As par­tic­i­pants ful­fil the above cri­te­ria and fi­nalise readi­ness prepa­ra­tions, CO­V­AX will is­sue pur­chase or­ders to the man­u­fac­tur­er and ship and de­liv­er dos­es via an it­er­a­tive process. This means de­liv­er­ies for this first round of al­lo­ca­tion will take place on a rolling ba­sis and in tranch­es.”

Paras­ram has said that a sim­i­lar-type agree­ment with the African Med­ical Coun­cil will see T&T re­ceiv­ing a fur­ther 226,000 COVID-19 vac­cines as they be­come avail­able
