State Minister of Epidemics and COVID Disease Control Sudarshini Fernandopulle says the World Health Organisation or the country’s vaccination committee have not recommended ‘mix and match’ of different types of COVID-19 vaccination doses.

Speaking at a media briefing today State Minister Fernandopulle said the public will be notified accordingly when a decision is reached.

She claimed the vaccination committee has recommended the same vaccine as the first dose to be administered for the second dose.

The State Minister noted this procedure could change according to global laboratory reports.

State Minister Fernandopulle added women have a special responsibility in controlling the spread of the coronavirus.

Fernandopulle requested women to ensure the safety of their families within the next four weeks by acting responsibly and eradicating all possibilities of germs being brought to homes.
