Tanzanian President Calls for Vaccine Procurement Guidelines
(Bloomberg) -- Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan directed the health ministry to submit to the cabinet guidelines on procurement and funding of Covid-19 vaccines.
Hassan has also allowed foreign embassies and international organizations to import vaccines to inoculate their employees, according to a statement from the presidency.
It’s the latest step by Hassan to seek inoculation for a country whose former President John Magufuli had warned against using the vaccines before his death in March.
