Rwanda has started administering the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine to its Police peacekeepers serving in different UN missions in Africa.

On Wednesday, May 19, officers of Rwanda Protection Unit (PSU) and Formed Police Units-One (FPU-1) serving under the UN Multidimentional Integration Stabilization Mission in Central African Republic (MINUSCA), received their second jab.

PSU1-6 contingent of 140 officers, was deployed last week under the rotation arrangement.

They are largely charged with ensuring security of top CAR officials including the Prime Minister and other government and international VIPs.

The other two FPU contingents serving under MINUSCA, have 140 officers each.

Meanwhile, in South Sudan, officers of Rwanda FPU 1 and 3, are expected to get their second jab this Thursday, May 20.

The two contingents are composed of 240 and 160 Police officers, respectively.

All officers of Rwanda FPU 2 deployed in Juba, South Sudan received their second shot, recently.
