Second-dose of COVID-19 vaccine

The Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 vaccination programme has moved into the next phase with the roll-out of the second-dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine. 

“We are excited that the second phase of the vaccine roll-out has started and the positive implication this has for our travel-ready preparations” said Faamatuainu Lenataí Suifua, Samoa Tourism Authority CEO.

As of 17th June, more than 43,000 (or 32% of the eligible population) had received the first dose and more than 800 had received the second dose.

Members of the Tourism Sector continue to support the vaccination-drive and were among the initial group which received the second dose.
