The Minister said that under the guidance of the Health Minister and on the instructions of the President and the Prime Minister, the vaccination programme has been implemented successfully throughout the island for those over 30 years.

“Under the guidance of the Health Minister, Health Division, COVID Task Force, National Youth Services Council and the Army, young people between 20 and 30 throughout the country will be vaccinated in the next few weeks,” the Minister said.

“We see that youth are very keen to receive the vaccine,” the Minister said, because they have been educated through Village Committees, Youth Committees, Youth Movements and Youth Services Council in this regard.
