Covid-19 Vaccines in Malawi

“We will not end the pandemic anywhere unless we end it everywhere,” said the World Health Organization Director-General

On March 5th, 2021, Malawi received its first batch of COVID-19 vaccinations. This was made possible by global advocates fighting for vaccine equity. Their moral leadership ensures the vaccine will be available to both higher-income and lower-income countries. For these advocates, we are exceedingly grateful. 

The Government of Malawi distributed its first COVID-19 vaccines to Malawian soldiers, immigration officers, healthcare workers, etc. Included were healthcare workers in the private sector. 45 people on Orant’s campus received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine at the end of March. 41 were staff. 4 were family of staff who live on campus. The staff who haven’t received a vaccine can expect one when the government rolls out mass vaccinations. 

After a year of more stress than most, we finally feel some relief. We can now continue to serve Malawi’s most vulnerable with less fear and anxiety.
