He made the remarks on Thursday when presenting a report on the country’s situation at the World Health Organisation (WHO) African Region press briefing on COVID-19 in Africa.
Mr Sekatle said the country managed to use 100 percent of the vaccination it received, adding that the dozes are finished although the demand is still high.
The vaccine, he said was administered to 95 percent of local health workers including village health workers as well as other vulnerable groups that are at risk of catching the virus.
He said at the beginning of the vaccine rolling-out, they met several challenges including myths about the vaccines having a negative effect when used.
To bring back the people’s trust, he said they had to rely on science and communicated the benefits more.
He said they also commenced the vaccination campaign with His Majesty King Letsie III, the Prime Minister and other community leaders in order to lead by example.
He said they worked with their development partners including WHO to disseminate essential information.
He said Lesotho is aware that other countries are already experiencing the third wave of the pandemic, adding that this calls for discipline and resilience in order to overcome the virus.
Speaking at the same event, WHO Regional Director for Africa, Dr Matshidiso Moeti said they will distribute second dozes of the COVID-19 vaccine by July to avoid any delays in order to save more lives.
