Belgium is planning to donate 155,200 Covid-19 vaccines to Tanzania in an effort to step up the nationwide vaccination campaign.  The Johnson & Johnson vaccines will arrive in Dar es Salaam on Friday, December 3, 2021.

The deputy head of mission at the embassy of Belgium in Tanzania Petra Heylen said in a statement.

The embassy statement stated that the distribution will take place via multilateral distributor the Covax facility, and is coordinated by the United Nations children fund (Unicef).

The donation forms part of an earlier commitment by the Government of Belgium to distribute at least 4 million vaccines to middle and low income countries by the end of 2021.

The Brussels government lauded the government of United Republic of Tanzania for stepping up the awareness raising campaigns to inform the general public about the importance to get vaccinated, as well as facilitating vaccination all over the country.”
