No exact date on when AstraZeneca will arrive

The Health Ministry says there is no exact date on when Sri Lanka will receive AstraZeneca vaccines to be used as the second dose.

The vaccines had been expected this week but the Health Ministry today said that it is now expected in another two weeks.

Health Promotion Bureau (HPB) Director Dr. Ranjith Bathuwanthuduwa told reporters today that there is still no fixed date on when the vaccines will arrive.

However, Bathuwanthuduwa urged the public not to panic, saying the second dose will arrive soon.
