Guinea launched its official vaccination campaign against COVID-19 with Chinese vaccines on Friday here in its capital.
Medical and health personnel, religious workers, people in key positions and over-65 elders will get vaccinated first, Health Minister Remy Lamah said.
Vaccination with Chinese vaccines will bring greater convenience to medical work and more hope to the fight against the epidemic, said Mohamed Conde, the first health worker in the country to receive the Chinese vaccine shot.
As of Friday, the country has recorded 16,420 COVID-19 cases with 93 deaths and 15,091 recoveries.
