AT From Monday, June 7, Wallonia will no longer inject, at any rate temporarily, a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, Sudpresse titles reported on Monday.
The region prefers to devote the small reserve it has and the next deliveries to the second doses. To date, Wallonia has vaccinated 415,000 people with one dose of this vaccine, of which nearly 56,000 have received the second dose. There are therefore approximately 359,000 doses required for the second injections of this vaccine. According to the spokesperson for the Walloon Minister of Health, 54,000 appointments have already been made for this week for second doses of AstraZeneca.
The dailies recall the AstraZeneca vaccine is at least as effective as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
As of this Saturday, June 5, 57.17% of Walloons aged 18 and over have received at least one dose of vaccine. And this Monday, the last convocations for 18 years and over will leave.
This means that all Walloons old enough to be vaccinated will have received their invitation.
