Sinopharm vaccines leaving China on the way to Trinidad and Tobago.

This country’s vaccination drive gained further momentum yesterday as news broke that 100,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccines are on their way to this country.

The Chinese Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago Fang Qiu gave an update on his Facebook page sharing photos of the vaccines being prepared for shipment.

In a short post, the Ambassador said the donation was transported from the plant to the cargo airport in Beijing. He said they are ready to make the journey across the ocean and reach the people of this country.

Ambassador Fang Qiu also said the Chinese government remains committed to cooperating with the people of this country to ensure efficient delivery.

Sinopharm received World Health Organisation’s approval recently.

China has donated 100,000 vaccines to this country.

Minister of Finance Colm Imbert also announced last week that Trinidad and Tobago has ordered 1.5 million doses of the vaccine.

The Ambassador also took a jab at countries hoarding vaccines, saying China wants global accessibility, especially for developing nations.
