Over 30s vaccination to be completed soon

The Government expects to complete the vaccination of the entire above 30 population by the end of this week, State Minister of Production, Supply and Regulation of Pharmaceuticals Prof Channa Jayasumana said.

Refuting certain social media reports which claimed that the COVID vaccines affect fertility, the State Minister said that no scientific study has proved this and he urged all vaccine eligible Sri Lankans to get whatever jab available without having any reservations.

He said youth in certain parts of the country are reluctant to get COVID jab due to various myths and beliefs and urged not to get misled by rumours.

Speaking at a media conference held yesterday at the Health Promotion Bureau, Deputy Director-General of Health Dr Hemantha Herath said that the country has administered a total number of 24,077,046 doses of COVID vaccines by yesterday (13). Accordingly, a total of 13,497,826 people have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and 10,579,220 people have received both doses.
