Prime Minister Dr Moeketsi Majoro made the announcement when addressing the nation on Sunday on the situation of the pandemic in Lesotho.
The vaccine, he said is expected to arrive in batches starting from early March, adding that the first batch will cover 430 000 people while the second one will be for 394 000 with the third catering for over 591 000 people.
The Prime Minister showed that the first targeted group to be vaccinated is the frontline workers including health professionals, immigration officers and media practitioners as well as people with chronic illnesses.
Second batch will include factory workers, mine workers, security forces, prisoners, teachers, learners, home affairs staff and traffic officers.
The third, he showed will include the rest of the nation excluding children under the age of 16.
Dr Majoro said a group of local business people has planned to come together to establish a trust fund in order to assist the government in ensuring a full coverage of the COVID-19 vaccination process.
He was hopeful that the fund will be launched before the end of March.
The National COVID-19 Secretariat (NACOSEC) together with the Ministry of Health, he said are currently engaged in a campaign to raise public awareness about the COVID-19 vaccination in order to prevent misinformation.
He thus appealed to Basotho to appreciate the education provided and consider it as essential.
Education, he further showed will keep the people fully informed and ready for the vaccine.
Commenting on the vaccines at a press briefing earlier, the newly appointed Minister of Health Semano Sekatle said the expected vaccines include AztraZeneza, Pfizer as well as Johnson and Johnson.
