    Useless. The government failed to properly manage the stock of AstraZeneca for the second dose. Until they get the assurance of replenishing the stock, they could have paused the programme. What’s the point of having a few thousands of another vaccine. Government must apologise to the general public for their utter mismanagement of the national vaccine programme.

    The Russian Sputnik V and the Chinese Sinopharm vaccines are not approved by the WHO and used only in third world countries like Sri Lanka.

    Vaccination is for 7500 people. Do not inject 15 thousand people. Inject only 7500 people. Use your kidneys to thin at least now.
