Eswatini to begin giving Covid vaccine boosters

Date: Nov 29, 2021

Eswatini has started giving Covid vaccine boosters as the country heightens alert after a new variant was discovered.

Health authorities have said those aged 18 and over, who have been fully vaccinated with AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna, within the last six months are eligible.

Eswatini is among several southern African countries facing travel restrictions to the United Arab Emirates, United Kindom and United States of America.

The country is also set to destroy some 100 000 Pfizer vaccines that expire on 2 December due to low uptake.
