The country’s vaccination programme has been making steady progress and offering some hope, although more work needs to be done. As of Tuesday 29th June, 2021, health authorities had administered 40, 615 total doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine representing 69.1 per cent of the target adult population.
Thirty point nine per cent of the adult population is yet to have their first dose. 17, 784 persons have been back for their second dose amounting to 53.8 percent. 46.2 percent of the target adult population still needs to roll up their sleeves for the second jab. In order for herd immunity to be achieved 70 percent of the total adult population, which equates to 33, 037 must be fully vaccinated.
