A number of vaccine appointments have been postponed following a shortage in doses available, Lovin Malta is informed.
Well-informed sources have told this newsroom that fewer doses of the Pfizer vaccine were delivered by suppliers, causing some appointments to be rescheduled “by a couple of days”.
It is unclear when the rescheduled appointments will take place, with reassurance from health authorities that they will happen shortly.
A total of 205,221 people have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in Malta in what has been a highly successful vaccine campaign that has seen the island allegedly becoming the first country in the world to achieve herd immunity.
Pfizer had initially reported delays in its distribution of vaccines to Europe last January, raising concerns about the rationale of an EU vaccine export control scheme.
Since then, no major hiccups have been noted with regards to vaccine distribution from the US drugmaker.
