In a dialogue with the press, Giammattei assured that Guatemala will receive 16 million doses in stages over the next seven months.

‘Total amount will be confirmed from Thursday to Friday, not only this month, but also May and subsequent months, so we are modifying our strategy according to the number of vaccine doses,’ he said.

One million doses could be arriving, the minimum amount expected to start immunization campaign in adults over 70 years, he detailed.

Giammattei afresh showed distrust with Covax’s effectiveness in the face of a new delay of 700,000 AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccine doses slated for the end of April.
