The Principality is awaiting marketing certification for coronavirus vaccines from European and French health authorities, the Government said on Thursday, November 26, adding that information on its vaccination strategy will be made available “as soon as the vaccines are delivered to Monaco.”

The necessary storage equipment is already available and orders have been placed for storage devices to accommodate certain vaccines at very low temperatures.

“With regard to vaccination operations and their organisation, all information will be communicated when the time comes. It will then be a question of determining the priority audiences, the types of vaccines available and the methods of administration of the vaccine,” the Government said.

The main candidate vaccines have widely different storage requirements.
