Bhutan got enough vaccines for all its citizens


Bhutan says it has enough corona vaccines to be given to all its citizens. On Tuesday, Bhutan’s Prime Minister Lotay Tshering said more than 1 million doses of the corona vaccine would be available in the country by the end of this year. Bhutan had earlier accepted US and Chinese corona vaccine proposals.

There are about 550,000 people in Bhutan who are eligible for vaccination. Bhutanese people who have previously been vaccinated by India are receiving a second dose of the European Union (EU) vaccine. A statement issued by the Bhutanese government on Tuesday quoted Prime Minister Tshering as saying, “Similar commitments are coming from other countries. Bhutan has informed them that there are now enough vaccines. However, they are urged to take a booster dose that they may need in the future. ‘

Bhutan has thanked the United States, the European Union, India, and China for their support of the corona vaccine. Bhutan had urged different 17 countries to provide a second dose on time once India had banned the export of the corona vaccines.

The United States has helped with 500,000 doses of Moderna, Denmark, Croatia, and Bulgaria with 350,000 doses of AstraZeneca, and China with 50,000 doses of Sinopharm. The 200,000 Doses of Pfizer vaccines purchased by Bhutan itself are expected to arrive in the next few months.

Earlier, India had given 550,000 doses of the corona vaccine to Bhutan.
