Venezuelan political leader, Leopoldo López, celebrated the beginning of the constitution of the National Roundtable for Access to the COVAX Strategy, which will allow Venezuela to access a vaccination plan against COVID-19.

“We thank Venezuelan doctors and academics for such an important advance for a vaccination program against COVID-19 that is endorsed by UNICEF and PAHO,” said López in a message disclosed through his Twitter account.

“For Venezuela to have access to the COVAX strategy, this process is necessary, which must include a consensus vaccination program involving medical societies, academia, UNICEF, PAHO and political actors,” the leader concluded.
