However, there continued to be claims that there was a lack of the vaccine at public health Institutions.
The Health Minister informed the media that due to the increase in demand for International Immunization cards the ministry had to order some 40, 000 cards.
Medical Director of Health Programs at Technical Support Service for the Ministry of Health, Dr. Kumar Sundaraneedy, in an interview this morning revealed that there is no shortage of the vaccine in the country.
He also said that distribution was not a problem.
He said the real issue lay in the requirement to show proof that they had the vaccine.
