Over 50% vaccinated with second dose now - Minister

Half of the Sri Lankan population is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and it is a great victory achieved by the country, Co-Cabinet Spokesman Mass Media Minister Dullas Alahapperuma said.

Speaking at the weekly Cabinet media briefing held yesterday at the Government Information Department, Minister Alahapperuma said each and every citizen plays a significant role in achieving this victory.

“It is fortunate that our country is able to be among the very few countries on the world map as a country where more than 50 percent of the population has been vaccinated with the second dose.

The Minister pointed out that most of these countries are G7 countries and four of them are vaccine-producing countries, the Minister said.

The Minister said that all are partners in this victory and that those who have made immense sacrifices in the field of health, security personnel, heads of state enterprises as well as people who did not go to work and stayed at home are heroes and partners in this victory.

COVID could be better managed if everyone spent the next few weeks in this same manner, he said.
