TUNIS, Feb 2 (Reuters) – Tunisia expects to receive four million free doses of COVID-19 vaccine through the Geneva-based GAVI vaccine alliance from mid-February, Health Minister Fouzi Mehdi said on Tuesday.
The doses will be enough to immunise 2 million of Tunisia’s 11.5 million population.
Tunisia become the third country in Africa to approve use of Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) said on Saturday. (Reporting by Tarek Amara Editing by Alexandra Hudson)
