Friday, April 7th, 2023

On April 4, 2023, a donation of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for children (12 years and older) from the people and Government of Lithuania was officially handed over to the Government of Belize.
The donation, which was received last week, was delivered to Hon. Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health & Wellness, by Mr. Carlos Perera, Honorary Consul of Lithuania.
The ministry extends appreciation for the vaccines as officials continue to monitor and respond to COVID-19. The ministry reminds the public that getting vaccinated against COVID-19 reduces the risks of developing complications and hospitalization if contracted. The ministry also advises citizens to take a booster if they are eligible to do so and to stay safe during the upcoming Easter weekend.
