The Ministry of Health has started administering the first dose of the Sputnik V vaccine as part of its campaign against COVID-19 in Mauritius.
Since Monday 12 July 2021, the COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V is available in Mauritius and its first dose is being administered by the Ministry of Health officials at the Central Warehouse in Castel, between 09h00 to 15h00.
Early information about the availability of the Sputnik V seemed to be poor, which led to many people flocking to Castel, in the hope of getting vaccinated. I checked the Government Information System and there has not been any communique about who is eligible for the Sputnik V vaccine.
The last communique published by GIS dates 10 July 2021.
Meanwhile, people have been queuing up at the Central Warehouse in Castel since as early as 7:00 a.m. Later on they were by the officers that only senior citizens, front-liners and employees of certain economic sectors registered though the Economic Development Board (EDB) would get access to the vaccination centre.
