“Over the last two weeks, over 250,000 people have been fully vaccinated in over 175 payams.” “A total of 995,187 vaccine doses have been administered since the start of the COVID-19 vaccination program in April 2021,” Dineen told The Juba Echo in Juba.

He stated that increased vaccination efforts have been carried out in 28 counties over the last two weeks and will continue until June 2nd. WHO conducted these vaccination campaigns in the states of Lakes, Warrap, Unity, Jonglei, and Upper Nile.
