Luanda – Ministry of Health (MINSA) announced Friday plans to start the registration of the population aged 18 years and over for Covid-19 vaccination.

The announcement was made by Secretary of State for Public Health, Franco Mufinda, at the usual data update session.

He spoke of on-line registration to avoid overcrowding and long queues at vaccination posts.

“Every citizen aged 18 years and over can get registered online and show up at the vaccination posts to get their dose”, explained the official.

So far, 1.7 million Angolans have been vaccinated, including 10,393 immunised on Friday, 13 August.

In Angola, the vaccination process started in March this year, with the administration of the first dose of the AstraZenica vaccine.

The ongoing vaccination campaign is expected to achieve about 15.7 million Angolans, aged 16 years and over.
