Covid-19 vaccine will be administered free to everyone, once it is available

Health Minister Chris Fearne stated that when the vaccine against coronavirus will be available, it will be administered free to everyone.

Speaking at a press conference, during which he announced the free administration of the new vaccine against pneumonia in babies, Dr Fearne said that currently there is no vaccine against Covid-19, however he added that various research are underway to immediately discover a vaccine.

The Minister said that if one wants to be optimistic, the coronavirus vaccine may be available in the market within six months but realistically, it will be available towards the end of the year or the beginning of next year.

The deputy PM stated that when the vaccine against Covid-19 is available in the market, the Maltese Government will purchase enough vaccines for the whole population and will be given to all free of charge.

Dr Fearne said that the coronavirus vaccine will be administered in the same way as the influenza vaccine, first to health sector workers and the most vulnerable persons and then to the rest of the population.

Meanwhile, persons who lost an appointment to vaccine babies during the past two months are being requested to phone number 25680299 for another appointment.
