Namibia has approved the use of six COVID-19 vaccines, health authorities said yesterday.
The government had approved the import of six COVID-19 vaccines from China, Russia, the U.S., South Korea, and India, respectively, said Ben Nangombe, executive director of the Health Ministry
A person who intends to import into Namibia any of the COVID-19 vaccines must have a license to import such COVID-19 vaccines issued by the Namibia Medicines Regulatory Council under section 31(5)(c) of that Act, Nangombe said.
The southwest African country, with a population of around 2.5 million, has so far registered 40,631 COVID-19 cases with 450 deaths.
