Their Majesties The King and Queen along with Princess Senate who received their first doses during the launch of the vaccine roll-out in March are also expected to receive their follow up doses soon.
Dr Majoro said it is important for every Mosotho to be vaccinated, assuring the nation of the effectiveness of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The government, he said is currently working on securing other vaccines, adding that they are expecting about 150 000 doses from China in two weeks’ time.
He said in July, they are expecting doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine from the African Union (UN), which could serve about 1.5 million Basotho.
Dr Majoro said the government is struggling to get vaccines especially because countries which manufacture the vaccine started by ensuring that their citizens get vaccinated before exporting to other countries.
