Member of Parliament for Kanye North, Thapelo Letsholo has appealed to the government to avail free COVID19 vaccine for all Batswana once it becomes available. When debating the State of the Nation Address yesterday, Letsholo said government needs a more aggressive stance and should be in the top 10% of countries in the world with guaranteed access to the vaccine.
Botswana is one of the 156 countries who have so far joined the COVAX facility.
COVAX is a COVID19 Vaccine Global Access Facility which was launched in April to accelerate the development and manufacturing of COVID19 vaccines, and guarantee fair and equitable access for every country in the world.
