( MENAFN ) Namibian people have radically increased their uptake for the coronavirus vaccine, stated Ministry of Health and Social Services executive director Ben Nangombe in an interview with Xinhua.

Over 104,199 vaccines have thus far been taken, stated Nangombe on Tuesday.

“So far we are impressed with the efficacy of the vaccines that have been taken up. Our study shows that Namibians are comfortable with both Sinopharm and AstraZeneca which we are currently administering.”

He noted: “we are expecting a new consignment from China after we sealed an agreement with the manufacturer of Sinopharm. We are also expecting another consignment of Johnson & Johnson from the African Union initiative and we have also completed negotiations with the Sputnik manufacturers.”
