Germany offers Togo the second batch of Covid vaccines

(Togo First) - Germany offered Togo 633,600 doses of Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccines on November 25, 2021. The batch, which was provided under the Covax initiative, is the second that Germany gives Togo. It was received by the country's health authorities at the Gnassingbé Eyadéma International Airport (AIGE).

According to Wotobe Kokou, secretary-general of the Togolese ministry of health, the new doses come right on time. He said they would "boost the fast-paced vaccination campaign that is ongoing in Togo." Launched on November 22, the campaign will last two weeks.

Also, local health authorities said, the batch should help Togo achieve its goal of having over a million people vaccinated by the end of the year.

In response, Camilla Gendolla, Chargé d'Affaires at the German Embassy in Togo, explained that Germany, through the provision, "integrates itself into a global solidarity movement

with a contribution of one billion euros to the Covax initiative."

Let's recall that last September, Germany gave Togo 100,000 doses of AstraZeneca.
