Several stakeholders assumed different responsibilities for global health security and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study aims to highlight how the Tanzanian government, in collaboration with the international government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), donor agencies, and stakeholders responded to the pandemic to improve health security and community well-being. This article analyzed secondary data sources from the World Health Organization's (WHO) country report and published reports from Tanzania's government to evaluate vaccine availability and health security. Findings from the data gathered indicate that the initial response from the Tanzanian government concerning the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic was rather abysmal due to the posture of the late President John Pombe Magufuli who at first downplayed the severity and seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with the swearing-in of the new President, Samia Suluhu, there was a new approach and strategy instituted to deal with the pandemic which has resulted in the country making headway in containing the pandemic. Data gathered thus, indicate that, as of 11th February 2022, the total number of fully vaccinated individuals in the country as of 12th April 2022 stood at 3,435,513 from the total number of 2,205,815 reported on 11th February 2022. This study thus, concludes that there is a need for a strong stakeholder engagement with high-level political, community, and religious leaders and increased access to COVID-19 vaccination as well as a mass campaign to scale up vaccination activities with adequate resource mobilization and plan.
