Whilst confirming that the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) will begin providing the second dose of Sinopharm vaccines from Tuesday, June 8, Colombo Mayor Rosy Senanayake yesterday expressed her sadness for the non-availability of Astrazeneca vaccines for the dwellers of Colombo City.

Ms. Senanayake told Daily Mirror that the Sinopharm will be provided from Tuesday from the same locations where the first dose was given. “We will be sending an SMS to all who received the vaccine earlier. Those who had the first jab of Sinopharm vaccine one month ago will be given the second dose,” she said.

“I am saddened about the non-availability of Astrazeneca vaccines. I have inquired from the central government as to when they could purchase these vaccines and they have informed me that all efforts are being made to purchase them as soon as possible,” she added.

Referring to the COVID-19 situation within Colombo City she said the pandemic has been controlled in the city to a great extent. “Most of the reported cases within Colombo City are those who come into the city from outside.(YOHAN PERERA)

    Did you mention that you have negotiated with another nation to get the balance Astra Zanica vaccines ? Now you are passing the buck to the Central government.

    Ranaweera Monday, 07 June 2021 08:08 AM

    Some parties , specifically on the Middle East and Africa are supposed to selling fake vaccines. So please be careful just try to expedite these ones from the USA. They have already agreed to give us. Mrs. Rosy , you are a good Mayor.

    As the mayor of Colombo she can make some arrangements to bring the number of astrazenica vaccines in to the country discussing with top level international diplomats

    Vaccine horu Monday, 07 June 2021 08:23 AM

    Ask the politicians to give back what they stole

    Jude Monday, 07 June 2021 08:33 AM

    Vaccination bungled and the priority list in a mess Yeah!!

    Sunil Monday, 07 June 2021 08:34 AM

    Why did you favour Cinnamon Gardens folks over the health workers and aged people. Poor governance and ethics Madam

    Tom jones Monday, 07 June 2021 08:36 AM

    More than a million people who have got the first jab of extra zeneca and who are in age range of 65to 85 are waiting are having sleepless nights and suffering in their old age. Please pressure the health officials to save their lives. It is no point in trusting these cronies in the Parliament whether they be SLPP/SLFP or UNP.

    RoaringCreek Monday, 07 June 2021 08:48 AM

    Madam, a few weeks ago you were praising President Nandasena. Now there is no second dose of AstraZeneca vaccine to most of the Colombo citizens. How come you do not condemn Nandasena? It is time you pack your bags and get ready to go home. We have had enough of turncoat Colombo mayors.

    roni Monday, 07 June 2021 08:56 AM

    Madam do not joke you go back to your statement be patient as the Astrazeneca will be administered in 3 weeks. In other countries the Mayor would have resigned or ask to resign for false statements. Remember you are paid by Public taxes.

    Philip de Silva Monday, 07 June 2021 09:39 AM

    Rosey please do ur job as mayor impartially and let authorities in charge handle vaccine import

    Dee Monday, 07 June 2021 10:25 AM

    Stop being a mouthpiece of a failed system!
