57k doses of Pfizer expected today

The Bahamas will receive 57,300 doses of the Pfizer vaccine today, according to the government. 

The news comes a day after Minister of Health and Wellness Dr. Michael Darville said more COVID vaccines are incoming. 

As vaccine supplies ran low, the ministry moved to suspend first doses of Pfizer on October 14.

It also announced that as of Saturday, second doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine will not be offered. Instead, people can get Pfizer as a second dose.

 As of October 16, 244,303 doses of the COVID vaccines have been administered in the country. 

More than 22,000 Bahamians and residents caught COVID since March 2020 and more than 600 have died because of the virus.
