DUSHANBE, 11.08.2021 (NIAT Khovar) – Germany will ship large quantities of the AstraZeneca vaccine to five different countries in the coming days.

Afghanistan will receive 213,600 doses, Ethiopia 271,200 doses, Sudan 357,600 doses, Tajikistan 100,800 doses, and Uzbekistan 355,200 doses.

“Germany will transfer these doses mostly through the COVAX initiative,” said representative of the Cabinet of Ministers of Germany Ulrike Demmer.

COVAX is an international vehicle launched by WHO in partnership with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovation. Under the terms of the program, high-income countries pay for the purchase of vaccines for less wealthy countries.

According to the plans, within the framework of the mechanism, by the end of 2021, 2 billion doses of vaccines should be produced and evenly distributed around the world.
