400,000 Doses of COVID-19 Vaccines Expire



Uganda is set to dispose of 400,000 doses of vaccines that were not utilised during the mass vaccination exercise in Acholi. The Minister of Health Jane Ruth Aceng also said the ministry will also dispose of 297 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines which have expired.

Government had secured over 500,000 doses of Moderna vaccines to be used in November last year in mass vaccination drive in Acholi sub region, unfortunately, only 100,000 doses of the vaccine were utilised, 400,000 doses went to waste as they were taken to Western Uganda but they failed to utilise them within 30 days.
