Honduras finalizes receipt of 4.4 million doses of COVID-19 with CABEI support
To date, 3.6 million Hondurans have been immunized with two doses.
Tegucigalpa, December 10, 2021.- The Republic of Honduras received the last 4.4 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine as part of the financial support provided by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) for the acquisition and implementation of the National Vaccine Introduction Plan, allowing 2.2 million Hondurans to be immunized against the virus.
This US$35 million operation began in June of this year and is already 87% complete.
CABEI Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi, emphasized: "It is very satisfying to see the significant progress made in the execution of this initiative in a short period of time, allowing CABEI's support to materialize in tangible benefits for the thousands of people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, so that they can protect their health and their families, as well as boosting the country's economic reactivation."
Honduras was the second country to access resources from the CABEI COVID-19 Emergency Support and Preparedness and Economic Revitalization Program, which the multilateral organization made available to its member countries for up to US$800 million on concessional terms in February of this year.
