Saint Lucia received 1,000 doses of the vaccine from the Barbados government and 2,000 doses from Dominica. These donations will bolster the national COVID-19 vaccination campaign which will be launched shortly by the Ministry of Health. The vaccines which have been received from regional counterparts will be used in the rollout of the first phase of vaccination.

The Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine is administered in two doses for gaining the required protection from the virus. The first vaccine batch of 1,500 will go to frontline workers which include medical personnel, state security including the police, fire service, correctional officers and paramedics.
