COVAX: The first doses of vaccine from Luxembourg have arrived in Rwanda

The Department for Humanitarian Cooperation and Action shared 12,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines, made available by the Ministry of Health, through the COVAX international exchange mechanism with Rwanda. In total, Luxembourg has committed at this stage to make 409,600 doses of vaccines available to COVAX.

Luxembourg had also committed to finance COVAX in the amount of € 2 million, a contribution that has just been increased by an additional € 2 million, bringing the total commitment to € 4 million. The mechanism, which aims to meet global immunization needs equitably, aims to purchase doses of vaccines and distribute them to 92 low-income economies around the world. The initiative is coordinated by the Vaccine Alliance, GAVI.

Franz Fayot, Luxembourg Minister for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Action, and Paulette Lenert, Minister of Health, highlighted the importance of sharing vaccines during a pandemic: “Only together can we control this pandemic, hence the urgent need to show solidarity within the international community to allow equitable access to vaccines, especially in vulnerable countries. Many countries still have very limited access to vaccines and are struggling to revive their economies. Higher global vaccination rate is needed to restore status of normal health on a global scale, for the well-being and protection of all. We are pleased to continue to support Gavi, our leading partner, in this solidarity effort. “
