Health Zambia received 151,200 more doses of Johnson and Johnsons Vaccine

151,200 more doses of Johnson and Johnsons have arrived in the country as part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to share the U.S vaccine supply with the world.

Speaking when receiving the vaccine consignment in Lusaka, USAID/ Zambia Mission Director Sheryl Stumbras said the United States has pledged $4 Billion to COVAX, to accelerate equitable global access to vaccines.

Ms. Stumbras said the vaccines were made available through the African Union Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX) facility and are part of the US pledge to provide at least 25 Million of 80 Million doses globally with Africa.

“Vaccines are an essential tool in reducing the impact of Covid-19. Of the people who have received a Covid-19 in Zambia, only about 40% of them are women,” she said.

And Ministry of Health Permanent Secretary Technical Services, Dr Kennedy Malama said the Zambian government is indebted to the United States Government for the continued support.

He noted that in the last 24 hours, the ministry of health administered 12,794 Dose 1 and 245 Dose 2 AstraZeneca vaccinations as well as 6,585 doses of Johnson and Johnson.

Dr. Malama further said 476 new confirmed COVID-19 cases were recorded in the last 24 hours out of 6,083 tests conducted giving 8% positivity.

“The cumulative number of confirmed cases recorded to date now stands at 193,432,” he said.

“We urge members of the public not to drop the guard even as we see a positive outlook as the situation can change suddenly especially that our positivity remains above 5% and we continue seeing very sick patients being hospitalized,”.

He added that on a sad note, the country has in the last 24 hours recorded 22 new COVID-19 related deaths.

“We currently have 6,137 active cases, with 5,634 under community management and 503 admitted to our COVID-19 isolation facilities. We had 54 new admissions in the last 24hours. Among those currently admitted, 360 are on Oxygen therapy and 123 are in critical condition,” he said.

  1. Good news for sure! But once again Edgar China Lungu didn’t pay even ONE KWACHA, the vaccines were a gift from a foreign donor! And still not ashamed, this horrible thieving president, he rather gives the money to his criminal cadres!

  2. “Zambia received 151,200 more doses of Johnson and Johnsons Vaccine”

    Don’t ever take ‘the vaccine’. They are deadly and have unknown health risks, most likely sterility and all kinds of vascular illnesses like myocarditis and pericarditis, thrombosis and much more.

    Quinine/hydroxychloroquine is very effective against Sars-Cov-2, as well as Sars-Cov-1, HIV, Ebola, Zika and more. That’s all over the scientific literature. (Google: hydroxychloroquine hiv. Google: hydroxychloroquine ebola. Google: hydroxychloroquine sars.)

  3. These drugs are immoral for they have been developed from aborted foetal matter. Abortion is a sin that is crying to God for vengeance,yes the blood of those innocent unborn babies murdered and in such a cruel manner cry out to God even through these vaccInes where their blood were poured in. Is not this human sacrifice and done on the altar of Satan? Are not the vaccines their unholy ‘eucarist’ given to many ?
    Why are the so called ‘churches ‘ silent and especially in Zambia called a’Christian nation ‘?
