Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarchchi stated that a majority of patients that succumbed to COVID-19 have not received even one dose of the COVID vaccine.

The Minister requested the people over the age of 60 and others with various complications to take part in the vaccination rollout and to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

She reiterated that the main objective of the vaccination rollout is to save the lives of people.

At present, the Government has implemented priority vaccination programmes throughout the island. The Minister of Health stated that the required quantities of vaccines have been received and will continue to be provided.

Despite the successful implementation of the vaccination programme by the Government in the last few days, there has been a slowdown in the number of people coming for vaccinations.

Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi stated that the health authorities have pointed this out with data and information.

The data and information show that people who have died of Covid infection and are in the intensive care unit have not received a single dose of the vaccine.
