While being interviewed on PBS program “L-Erbgħa Fost il-Ġimgħa“, the Prime Minister said that the “vaccine will be a crucial milestone” and it will “bring back confidence among people and will rid of the transmission of the virus”.

When asked when we should expect the disposal of the vaccine, PM Robert Abela said that “from current indications, by end of December or end of January we will have the vaccine”

Malta has a contract with AstraZeneca for a large number of dozes of their vaccine which is showing good signs of immunity across all ages.
