Palau’s president and president-elect rolled up their sleeves for their coronavirus vaccines this week, as the country aims to become one of the first in the world to innoculate its population against Covid-19.
The country started administering the Moderna vaccine, which was delivered on a special flight from the US on 3 January. Authorities hope to vaccinate 1400 people this week, starting with health workers and key decision makers, then the elderly.
Tommy Remengesau, who leaves office in a few weeks, said he was delighted to see Palau become one of the first countries to receive the vaccine.
