Jamaica has received an additional shipment of 55,000 doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines.

The shipment arrived at the Norman Manley International airport on Monday afternoon, through the COVAX medical facility.

This is the fourth shipment of vaccines for Jamaica.

 The country was also the first in the region to receive a shipment of vaccines through the COVAX facility when it received an initial 14,400 doses back in March.

Some 135,000 people have so far been vaccinated since Jamaica started administering the COVID jab in March.
